The student developed, directed, and coordinated a summer recreation program with the help of his supervisor at The Foundation for Blind Children in Scottsdale, Arizona; the responsibility of the coordinator was to design and implement the program within the context of the following educational and vocational domains: communication, orientation and mobility, self-help, social behavioral, personal hygiene, eating and food preparation, health and safety, and sports training. Several students enrolled in the program lacked the necessary skills in these areas and it was the intent of the coordinator to develop the skills of his students throughout the summer recreation program. The student's progress was evaluated as was the summer program. The student presented the information to Northern Illinois University by giving a presentation to an introductory vision course.
