A Total Curricular Approach to Pre-Vocational Training of Retarded Adolescents in an Integrated Setting.
Millonzi, Carol; And Others
A middle school program in Phoenix, New York, was planned to provide for trainable and low functioning educable mentally retarded students in an integrated setting. Cooperation between the planning team and the Office of Vocational Rehabilitation resulted in a program for 13 students aged 11 to 14 with four major areas of concentration: social skills, survival academics, work skills and habits (including independent classwork, a job program with actual work experience, and career exploration), and independent living skills (kitchen management and home maintenance).
