Vocational Special Needs: A Co-operative Project Between a Career Employment Experience Program and a Related Vocational Instruction Program.
Parkinson, Guy M.
The paper describes the Related Vocational Instruction (RVI) and Career Employment Experience (CEE) Programs at a Georgia high school and explains how the programs cooperated to better serve the needs of the educable mentally handicapped students in the school. The goal of the RVI program is to provide secondary handicapped students with job entry level skills in a broad or specific occupational cluster. Implementation is accomplished either through supplemental instruction to the handicapped students or resource instruction in the regular vocational setting. The CEE program is a paid work experience designed to help develop general employment abilities and attitudes in either in school or out of school youth between the ages of 16 to 21 years. Wages are paid by the program and participants work from 5 to 40 hours a week. To meet the needs of educable mentally retarded students at one Georgia high school a plan was devised which combined the two programs. (An outline of the project and a case history are provided.)
