Abstract
  • Menu-Choice is a program that was developed to provide physical activity support and education to group homes that house adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD). It has been shown that the physical activity levels for individuals living in group homes are low. This program was designed to provide direct care service staff and managers with a template to help residents increase their physical activity. In order to design the program, an “Advisory Group” of 19 participants consisting of residents with I/DD, program coordinators, support staff, and a group home agency director, was put together. The “Advisory Group” provided insight into daily operations within the group homes as well as barriers and motivators of physical activity for the residents. Using information provided by the “Advisory Group” a program binder was created. The program includes seven steps to educate staff and residents about physical activity and how to implement it over the course of eight weeks. The several steps also contain information on how to set a goal and how to document those goals once they have been reached. Along with the seven steps, a supplemental materials section was added to include motivational techniques, a number of ways to document baseline activity and progress, and examples of various kinds of activities (i.e. cardio/motor, strength, and flexibility activities). Simplicity was kept in mind when the program was created to ensure full comprehension. Menu-Choice was implemented into five group home sites for adults with I/DD. A quasi-experimental pretest-posttest design with follow-up was conducted. Fourteen program coordinators, 22 staff, and 18 residents participated. The results concluded after the ten-week program will help refine the program for continued implementation trials in the group home community.
