Oklahoma State Dept. of Human Services, Oklahoma City. Developmental Disabilities Services Div.
This participant's manual covers "People are People," the first module of a four-module training program for all individuals employed in programs funded by Oklahoma's Developmental Disabilities Services Division. This includes van drivers, recreation workers, residential staff, administrators, case managers, secretarial/clerical staff, vocational staff, advocates, physicians, psychologists, and others. The primary objective of the module is to have the participant understand and apply the concept of looking at individuals with developmental disabilities as people rather than as products of their disability. Secondary objectives include defining and using "People First" language, identifying criteria involved in the term "developmental disability," describing common developmental disabilities, and listing three statistics concerning people with developmental disabilities. The module includes the primary and secondary objectives, a text and question format that allows participants to become actively involved in the learning process, information from transparencies used in training, and copies of handouts.
