Living in the community offers individuals with disabilities opportunities for personal growth. Along with these opportunities come responsibilities... and risks. Individuals of all ages and abilities must acquire skills that help them manage risks and lead safe, productive, and independent lives. This definitive resource provides effective behavioral-instructional strategies for teaching essential personal safety skills and promoting overall well-being. Case studies demonstrate these strategies in practice, and detailed curriculum goals are included to guide intervention efforts. Focusing on altering behaviors - not just attitudes - and emphasizing prevention, this clearly written guide addresses a broad range of topics including first aid, crime deterrence, home and job safety, fire safety, nutrition and food preparation, and the prevention of substance use and HIV/AIDS. Educators, school nurses, employers, service providers, families, and others teaching community-based skills will use this practical reference to help individuals with disabilities adapt to life in the community, improve the safety of their surroundings, and enhance the quality of their lives.
