This trainer's manual was developed to provide a consistent knowledge and skill base (i.e., a "foundation") for all individuals employed in programs funded by Oklahoma's Developmental Disabilities Services Division. They include van drivers, recreation workers, residential staff, administrators, case managers, secretarial/clerical staff, vocational staff, advocates, physicians, psychologists, and others. The goal is to create an environment in which all people with developmental disabilities are valued and treated as normally as possible. The training is composed of four modules of instruction: (1) "People Are People" defines developmental disability and describes some of the disabilities included in that term; (2) "Changing Times" traces historical events that influenced how services for people with developmental disabilities developed, emphasizes an understanding of what didn't work and why, and introduces the principle of normalization; (3) "Systems and Policies" provides a snapshot of the Oklahoma service delivery system, including public and private service providers, families, advocates, and others; and (4) "The New Frontiers" offers a vision of the future and examines technological trends. Instructional methods include large and small group activities; the use of videos, transparencies, and other audiovisual media; handouts; and exercises. The manual provides camera-ready masters for making transparencies. (Contains 30 references.) (JDD)
