Description [Washington, D.C.] : Distributed by ERIC Clearinghouse, 1994 
85 p. 

This handbook is the fruit of two projects of the University of Minnesota's College of Education: (1) the Dowling Friendship Program, a 3-year project at a public elementary school in Minneapolis in which children with and without disabilities participated in a variety of recreation activities during school, after school, at each other's homes, and at neighborhood recreation centers; and (2) a statewide survey of best practices in inclusive recreation based on responses from 484 community recreation agencies. The book proposes that recreation can be a powerful vehicle for promoting friendships between children with and without disabilities, with the word "recreation" referring to both structured as well as informal activities. In Chapter 1, children talk about friendship, parents talk about their children's friendships, and school personnel talk about their students' friendships. Chapters 2 and 3 focus on common barriers to friendship and examine what families, school staff, and community recreation staff can do to encourage friendships. Chapter 4 presents suggestions for facilitating friendship development in recreation activities. It discusses planning for friendship using focus groups, offers 10 guidelines for facilitating friendships and tips for leading small groups, and suggests how to avoid common problems. Appendixes contain a 21-item bibliography, information about the Dowling Friendship Program, interviews with the Principal and Integration Specialist of the Dowling Urban Environmental Learning Center, and indicators of quality in integrated community recreation.
