Activity-Based Intervention for Multiple-Disabled Visually Impaired People
Tellevik, Jon Magne; Elmerskog, Bengt
British Journal of Visual Impairment, v27 n3 p204-220 2009
The article describes assessment, planning and training for people with multiple disabilities and visual impairment (MDVI). The ImPAct MDVI project, an EU Comenius programme, addressed concerns expressed by teachers of children and young people with MDVI as to how they are expected to integrate the diverse curriculum elements and particular skills they have been taught into a meaningful educational process. The aim of the project was to develop a holistic teaching approach, based on activities, participation and involvement in real life situations, aiming at involving people with MDVI in their social and physical context. This was achieved by applying a 5-step working model (Tellevik and Elmerskog, 2001), which sought to support the development of assessment and planning intervention strategies. (Contains 7 tables and 1 figure.)
