Prevocational Skills Checklist for Severely Handicapped. Second Edition.
Barrett, Patricia L.; Schwerdt, Alan
The prevocational skills checklist is designed to be used as a continuous recordkeeping instrument on a severely handicapped student. Objectives of the checklist are to identify student competency level in prevocational skills; to identify areas where the student is lacking in basic vocational competencies; to provide educators with a competency list for prevocational curriculum development; and to provide a reference to prevocational skills needed for day care, work activities, sheltered workshops, and transitional community employment. Section I lists competencies to be checked and recorded for developing a student profile. Items cover competencies in the following skill areas: cognitive-functional math, vocational-fine motor, personal and safety, career awareness, vocational gross motor, cognitive-visual discrimination, cognitive-auditory discrimination, cognitive-tactile discrimination, cognitive-directional skills, cognitive-copying skills, vocational-social and emotional, and vocational-gross motor. A second section lists competencies relevant for prevocational and vocational training classes for secondary level severely handicapped students. Covered are skills needed for day care center, work activity center, and sheltered workshop placements. Student learning profile sheets are included at the end of each of the subsections in the document. (SB)
