Vocational Education for Handicapped Persons. Handbook for Program Implementation.
Young, Earl B.; And Others
To provide vocational educators with reliable information about the handicapped and suggestions for implementing services according to the Vocational Education Amendments of 1968, ideas were developed during a 2-day national conference attended by 200 educators and rehabilitation specialists, and were refined during nine regional clinics. Using these suggestions, this document strives to answer specific questions of program implementation, using model programs when possible, so that administrators at the local level can choose and implement according to need. The information is presented in these sections: (1) Who are the Handicapped? (2) Organizing for Cooperation: Interagency Involvement, (3) Services Available from Vocational Rehabilitation, (4) A Model for Statewide Cooperative Agreement, (5) Programs and Services, (6) Providing Services in Rural Areas, (7) Community Involvement in Vocational Educational Services for the Handicapped, (8) Considerations in Planning Vocational Education for the Hearing, Visually, and Physically Impaired, (9) Personnel, (10) Some Suggested Sources of Teaching Materials and Assistance, and (11) Vocational Education Amendments of 1968: Sections Related to the Handicapped.
