Abstract: According to the Office of Special Education (1987), approximately 190,000 students with disabilities graduate from public schools each year. Although these students are prepared for transition into adult life through special education, vocational training, functional skill development, and some adapted physical education programs, little specific training is offered for time these individuals are not at work. Potentially, some students lack skills or knowledge of what to do when not at work, which in turn may interfere with integration into their communities (Bellamy & Wilcox, 1982; Schleien & Ray, 1986; Voeltz, Weurch & Wilcox, 1982).
