Brown, Betty B.
The briefing paper examines the problems in providing vocational education to handicapped secondary students in South Carolina; reviews three major laws mandating vocational training for the handicapped (the Education for All Handicapped Children Act, the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, and the Vocational Educationl Act of 1963 as mandated through 1976); and discusses approaches planned by the State Department to resolve the problems. Among those initiatives are monitoring individualized education programs for their consideration of vocational education needs, development of appropriate program designs for vocational education, and provision of career counseling for handicapped students and their parents.
