What Did I Do? A Scenario-Based Program To Assist Specific Learning Disabled Adolescents in Understanding Legal Issues.
McDougall, Donna M.
This practicum was designed to train eight adolescents with specific learning disabilities (SLD) about their legal rights and responsibilities, through a scenario-based program presented in the classroom as part of a transition program. The practicum involved the development of 22 scenarios, a pretest and posttest, and discussions and role-playing sessions with the scenarios. Among topics covered by the scenarios were: shoplifting, fatherhood (rights and responsibilities), routine traffic stop, disorderly conduct, assault and battery, parents' authority and responsibilities, fireworks, school attendance, school's authority, handicapped rights, labor laws, driver's license rights and responsibilities, use of telephone, trespassing, age of majority, motorcycle usage, and rights in court. Results indicated that students increased their knowledge of their legal rights and responsibilities and also gained skill in making thoughtful decisions in this area. (Contains 13 references.)
