Self-Actualization: The Heart and Soul of a Potential-Based Life Skills Program for a Child with Multiple Disabilities
Croft, Gillian; Boyer, Wanda; Hett, Geoffrey
Early Childhood Education Journal, v37 n1 p43-49 Aug 2009
Although every child with disabilities may come to self-actualization by different means and measurements it is, nevertheless, an important goal. The child with disabilities may be guided toward her goal of self-actualization by being encouraged to find her individual strengths and capacities, and by being assisted to successfully interact with her environment. This article explores the use of the scientific method to support the development of a potential-based program that has nurtured self-actualization and the joy of learning for a child with multiple disabilities and chronic illness.
