This guide presents a comprehensive framework for the development and provision of outdoor education and adventure programs for people of all abilities, including those who significantly challenge the service delivery system. Chapter 1 provides a rationale for the integration of disabled persons into outdoor education and adventure programs, and discusses benefits of integration for participants with and without disabilities. Chapter 2 describes administrative processes and issues related to organizational goals and mission, funding and logistics, safety and liability, physical accessibility, participant recruitment, staff selection and training, and volunteers. An "Integration Administrative Concerns Matrix" categorizes steps in the administrative process, potential problems, and recommended strategies. Chapter 3 explains how to assess participants' needs, abilities, and interests in order to match participants with appropriate physical environments and with each other. Chapters 4 and 5 provide practical guidelines for promoting healthy group processes, building individuals into a team, and adapting activities and outdoor techniques to participant abilities. Chapter 6 contains six complete outdoor lesson plans involving nature study, recycling, cross-country skiing, kayaking, navigation, and canoeing. Chapter 7 illustrates a systemic approach to inclusion in two exemplary Minnesota programs--Wilderness Inquiry and the Bloomington Park and Recreation Division. Appendices include water safety policies, participant application forms, accessibility survey, and a list of agencies and associations serving disabled persons. Contains 92 references, many photographs, and an index. (Sv)

Making friends : using recreation activities to promote friendship between children with and without disabilities by Linda Ann Heyne( Book )

4 editions published between 1 and 1994 in English and held by 94 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This handbook is the fruit of two projects of the University of Minnesota's College of Education: (1) the Dowling Friendship Program, a 3-year project at a public elementary school in Minneapolis in which children with and without disabilities participated in a variety of recreation activities during school, after school, at each other's homes, and at neighborhood recreation centers; and (2) a statewide survey of best practices in inclusive recreation based on responses from 484 community recreation agencies. The book proposes that recreation can be a powerful vehicle for promoting friendships between children with and without disabilities, with the word "recreation" referring to both structured as well as informal activities. In Chapter 1, children talk about friendship, parents talk about their children's friendships, and school personnel talk about their students' friendships. Chapters 2 and 3 focus on common barriers to friendship and examine what families, school staff, and community recreation staff can do to encourage friendships. Chapter 4 presents suggestions for facilitating friendship development in recreation activities. It discusses planning for friendship using focus groups, offers 10 guidelines for facilitating friendships and tips for leading small groups, and suggests how to avoid common problems. Appendixes contain a 21-item bibliography, information about the Dowling Friendship Program, interviews with the Principal and Integration Specialist of the Dowling Urban Environmental Learning Center, and indicators of quality in integrated community recreation.
