ABSTRACT

This study aimed to investigate the effect of Web-Based Adaptive Living Skills Curriculum-Community Living Skills (ALSC-CLS) in students with severe mental retardation. 61 students in areas of Seoul, Kyongki, and Chungnam participanted in this study: 30 students in the experimental group were taught curriculums in ALSC-CLS, whereas 31 students in the control group were taught the government-recommended usual curriculum for 12 weeks. The effect of ALSC-CLS was measured by K-SIB-R (Korean Scale of Independence Behavior-Revised). K-SIB-R score was taken two times: before and after the application of ALSC-CLS. ANCOVA analysis revealed that the effect of ALSC-CLS was highlighted in the four sub scales of K-SIB-R such as social interaction, comprehension, personal self-care, home-community orientation. However, there were no gender differences across all the four sub-scales whereas there were developmental differences in both subscales of comprehension and home-community orientation.
