Helping individuals with severe disabilities find leisure activities

Written Material

A rather technical piece, this article provides some really good guidelines for selecting leisure activities for individuals with high support needs. These guidelines include such things as a program philosophy and practice of inclusion, age appropriateness, likes and dislikes of the person, personal assistance strategies and adaptations, meaningful participation (even if it can only be partial) and feasibility issues such as costs and transport.
