Abstract

The concept. of family leisure programming has been addressed in the literature from numerous perspectives. There is, however a lack of literature describing programs of this nature. The purpose of this paper is to describe a family leisure program that focuses on enhancing family relationships through participation in leisure activities. The goals of this program are to improve interaction skills, increase parenting skills, and to develop leisure awareness, skills and abilities for families with a handicapped individual. The program includes an evaluation procedure and future research recommendations.
