ABSTRACT

The study investigated effects of education and welfare services offered in the community on the socially adaptive behavior skills and self-esteem of students with severe and multiple disabilities who are receiving residential and itinerant education, and examined a program satisfaction degree of community service providers and families who participated. The result of the study showed that the socially adaptive behavior skills and self-esteem of all three students were improved. The students and their families have more concern for individual and social behavior skills than other skills. The community-based welfare services expanded their activity range, and improved their independence and self-confidence, as well as social skills. Particularly, families, the staff from organizations, and volunteers reported the positive effects of connecting the community-based welfare service to education programs of schools for students with severe and multiple disabilities. The participants' satisfaction degree of the program was high. So, the study discussed that students with severe and multiple disabilities need the community-based welfare services with residential and itinerant education for their social integration, eventually.
