Functional skills l.jpg
Functional skills

  • Immediately useful

  • Demanded in everyday activities and environments, both in and out of school

  • Result in greater independence & less dependence

  • Allow access to less restrictive environments

SPED 535 Functional


Criterion of ultimate functioning l.jpg
Criterion of ultimate functioning

  • Skills that adolescents and adults with severe disabilities would need in order to function as effectively and independently as possible in vocational, residential, and social environments

  • Should reflect need for transitions from one environment to the subsequent or next environment

SPED 535 Functional


Criterion of the next environment l.jpg
Criterion of the next environment

  • Skills a student needs in the next educational environment

SPED 535 Functional


Criterion of the immediate environment l.jpg
Criterion of the immediate environment

  • Consider needs for student to function in the immediate or current environment(s)

"A functional curriculum could be defined as the life skills needed by a student in the current environment in which he or she was functioning, the life skills needed in the student's immediate next education environment,and the skills the student would need after leaving school to function in vocational, residential, and recreational environments."

Ecological inventories l.jpg
Ecological inventories needed by a student in the current environment in which he or she was functioning, the life skills needed in the student's immediate next education environment,

  • A systematic, flexible process for determining a scope and sequence of functional living skills

Relationship of domains l.jpg
Relationship of domains needed by a student in the current environment in which he or she was functioning, the life skills needed in the student's immediate next education environment,

  • Not all skills fit tidily into one domain.

  • Many have application across more than one domain.

  • "More bang for the buck".

Principal of partial participation l.jpg
Principal of partial participation needed by a student in the current environment in which he or she was functioning, the life skills needed in the student's immediate next education environment,

  • Can't deny child access because of physical or cognitive deficits

  • Individuals with (severe) disabilities can acquire many skills that will allow them to function, at least in part, in a wide variety of least restrictive environments and activities.

SPED 535 Functional


The child should be allowed to participate in the activity even when l.jpg
The child should be allowed to participate in the activity even when:

  • the child does not exhibit all the necessary prerequisite skills,

  • the child will not be able to acquire all components of the skill,

  • the child may not complete the entire activity or skill independently, and

  • the child's developmental age is lower than his or her corresponding chronological age.

Frequently thought of as providing physical assistance but that is too narrow a definition l.jpg
Frequently thought of as providing physical assistance, but that is too narrow a definition

  • Can be physical assistance

  • Can be a prosthesis

  • Can be communicative in nature to determine quality or make choices.

SPED 535 Functional


Types of adaptations l.jpg
Types of adaptations that is too narrow a definition

  • Provide personal assistance

  • Modify skills or activities

  • Use an assistive device

  • Modify the physical and social environments

Orelove & Sobsey, 1996

SPED 535 Functional


Slide26 l.jpg

Can't always come up with a modification that will allow the person to function independently, but can increase level of participation and thus independence.

SPED 535 Functional


Patterns of error in using partial participation l.jpg
Patterns of error in using partial participation person to function independently, but can increase level of participation and thus independence.

Ferguson & Baumgart, 1991

SPED 535 Functional


Passive participation l.jpg
Passive participation person to function independently, but can increase level of participation and thus independence.

  • Sitting in a classroom, i.e., just being present, doesn’t necessarily make it active participation

  • Example: going to music class, but not being able to sing or play the instruments

  • Nonexample: Listening to a book being read

SPED 535 Functional


Myopic participation l.jpg
Myopic participation person to function independently, but can increase level of participation and thus independence.

  • Focus is too narrow, doesn’t meet full needs of student, family, or community

  • Example: parent requests help with shopping; teacher implements in nongeneralizable environment

SPED 535 Functional


Piecemeal participation l.jpg
Piecemeal participation person to function independently, but can increase level of participation and thus independence.

  • Not connecting in-class instruction with out-of-class instruction throughout the day

  • Example: Instructional lesson aimed at object permanence, public library outing in afternoon, play story tape in evening at home

SPED 535 Functional


Missed participation l.jpg
Missed participation person to function independently, but can increase level of participation and thus independence.

  • The length of time required to learn to do something independently may be too time consuming, might be better to simply rely on personal assistance, so valuable time can be spent learning other skills as well

  • Example: Can’t grasp items in cafeteria to place on tray, can’t carry tray. Since there are always people present in the cafeteria, might be better to just leave it at that.

SPED 535 Functional


Remediation strategies l.jpg
Remediation strategies person to function independently, but can increase level of participation and thus independence.

SPED 535 Functional


Active participation l.jpg
Active participation person to function independently, but can increase level of participation and thus independence.

  • Rather than worry about expanding a behavioral repertoire, concentrate on strengthening a small set of behaviors

SPED 535 Functional


Attend to multiple perspectives l.jpg
Attend to multiple perspectives person to function independently, but can increase level of participation and thus independence.

  • Use family and community-referenced assessment

  • Use ongoing instructional information systems

  • Use ongoing outcome information systems

SPED 535 Functional


Use information from multiple sources l.jpg
Use information from multiple sources person to function independently, but can increase level of participation and thus independence.

  • Merge “competing” perspectives

  • Ongoing planning and program improvement
