The Role of Sheltered Workshops in the Vocational Education of Students in the Special Services School District of Bergen County.
Bergen County Special Services School District, Paramus, NJ.
The document reports the rationale, goals, objectives, and activities of a Bergen County (New Jersey) program to appraise students in the sheltered workshop relative to prevocational and vocational strengths and needs and to prepare students with the necessary knowledge, skills, and attitudes for functioning semi-independently in sheltered workshops or in comparable work environments in the community. Appendixes contain results from a needs assessment for vocational programing, curriculum based assessment data, workshop profile information, and evaluation forms. The curriculum based assessment data, which makes up the bulk of the document, is organized into three clusters (general, behavioral, and life skills) with each cluster broken down into specific skills which include the following: will demonstrate personal hygiene skills, will demonstrate socially appropriate verbalization/manners, and will strive to carry out agreed upon behavior contracts and expectations. Tasks involved with each skill are outlined where appropriate. (SB)
