DEFINITIONS OF SECTIONS IN PART B
All sections of the worksheet must be completed using prior knowledge or direct observation/assessment of the client in order to support the determination that the resident is developmentally disabled and to give an accurate picture of the resident's current functional status. The six areas of major life activity measured by this worksheet are defined as follows:
Self-care skills refer to the effectiveness or degree with which individuals meet the standards of personal independence and social responsibility expected of their age and cultural group. Self-care skills include personal skills essential for privacy and independence including, but not limited to toilet training, personal hygiene, dental hygiene, self-feeding, bathing, dressing, and grooming. Independent living skills include, but are not limited to such things as meal preparation, doing laundry, bed making, budgeting, and skills essential for one's safety in the community, such as watching for traffic before crossing streets.
Understanding and use of language refers to the development of both verbal and nonverbal and receptive and expressive communication skills.
Learning refers to the development of those processes by which information received by the senses is stored, recovered, and used. It includes the development of the processes and abilities involved in memory, reasoning, and problem solving.
Self-direction refers to the independent ability to engage in a direct course of thought or action; to engage in motivated, purposeful actions. For example, a client who can reliably and independently locate leisure time material and use them in an normative manner would be characterized as possessing a high degree of self-direction.
Mobility refers to the ability to move from one area to another area independently. The need for assistive devices does not indicate that the individual is non-mobile, but the assistive devices should be noted.
Capacity for independent living refers to the ability to provide for one's own custody. The capacity for independent living involves the degree to which there is a probability of physical impairment or injury to the resident or other individuals due to violent behavior or impaired judgement. The determination of an individual's capacity for independent living may (or may not) be affected by limitations in self-care skills, learning, and self-direction the individual may have.
