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

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

SPED 535 Functional


Relationship of domains l.jpg

Relationship of domains

  • Not all skills fit tidily into one domain.

  • Many have application across more than one domain.

  • "More bang for the buck".

SPED 535 Functional


Principal of partial participation l.jpg

Principal of partial participation

  • 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

  • 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.

Patterns of error in using partial participation l.jpg

Patterns of error in using partial participation

Ferguson & Baumgart, 1991

SPED 535 Functional


Passive participation l.jpg

Passive participation

  • 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

  • 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

  • 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

  • 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.

Active participation l.jpg

Active participation

  • 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

  • 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

  • Merge “competing” perspectives

  • Ongoing planning and program improvement
