First published in 1984, Integrated Programmes for Handicapped Adolescents and Adults explores the need to develop integrated programmes for adolescents and adults with developmental disabilities.
Whilst the training models and concepts examined largely relate to formal areas of education, such as reading, mathematics, and writing, the book also pays close attention to social education skills, including home management, budgeting, meal preparation, and the development of positive familial relationships.
Integrated Programmes for Handicapped Adolescents and Adults presents a number of projects from different parts of the world, with an emphasis on linking research and practice.
