GROUNDSMAN-GARDENER FOR SPECIAL CLASS STUDENTS (EDUCABLE MENTALLY RETARDED YOUTH), FINAL REPORT.
NICOLAYSEN, G. ROY
A SUMMER PILOT PROGRAM WAS CONDUCTED TO VOCATIONALLY TRAIN EDUCABLE MENTALLY RETARDED (EMR) STUDENTS. SPECIAL CLASS STUDENTS (16) IN THE 11TH AND 12TH GRADES WERE ENROLLED AND SUCCESSFULLY COMPLETED THE 6-WEEK COURSE. THE GROUNDSMAN-GARDENER COURSE WAS DIVIDED INTO TWO PARTS, CLASSROOM STUDY AND WORK EXPERIENCE. THE GOALS TO BE REALIZED WERE (1) TRAINING AND PLACEMENT OF EMR STUDENTS, (2) STUDENT ABSORPTION INTO THE REGULAR CLASS PROGRAM, (3) PART-TIME EMPLOYMENT, AND (4) CONTINUED TRAINING AS DEPARTMENT OF VOCATIONAL REHABILITATION CLIENTS. IN EVALUATING THE PROGRAM, THE PARTICIPANTS CONCLUDED THAT ALL OF THE GOALS WERE MET, AND THE OVERALL SUCCESS OF THE PROGRAM WAS ATTRIBUTED TO THE PLANNED CURRICULUM. RECOMMENDATIONS WERE MADE THAT THE PROGRAM BE EXPANDED TO AFFORD OPPORTUNITY TO MORE EMR STUDENTS. (RS)
