Training Adults with Intellectual Disabilities to Use Leisure Activities in an Institutional Setting: An Evaluation of an Activities Manager Routine.
Dunne, Peter; Sanders, Matthew R.
Australia and New Zealand Journal of Developmental Disabilities, v12 n2 p97-110 Jun 1986
The study compared two approaches to increasing engagement in a leisure activities program with six institutionalized retarded adult males. The "activities manager" approach was more effective in increasing levels of engagement than the "prompting independent use of activities" approach. There was little change, however, in resident vocalization, self-stimulation, or disruptive behavior. (Author/DB)
