Description

<p>This study conducted a questionnaire survey regarding the transportation-related needs of students who are attending the A Special Needs School for Intellectually Disabled Children. The study was conducted in order to examine Travel Training/Transportation Education Programs for intellectually disabled children. As a result it was found, among other things, that "children from the elementary school level to the high school level tend to spend their after-school hours outside their homes," that "while, until high school, parents are responsible for training their children to deal with expansions in their living areas and means of transportation, many parents are unaware of the availability of training services," that "challenges unique to urban centers, such as the lack of traveling skills in crowded areas and not knowing how to respond to trouble, are being encountered on a daily basis," that "there is a high demand for training on how to pay attention to speeding bicycles and pedestrians on the sidewalk," and that "there is a high demand for training on how to respond to troublesome situations." 95 percent of parents said they desired opportunities for their children to receive Travel Training/Transportation Education.</p>
