Supportive Services Personnel. Career Planning and Vocational Programming for Handicapped Youth.
Minugh, Carol J.; Morse, Dian
This manual for supportive services personnel, one in a series of nine staff development guides prepared by the Philadelphia School District, clarifies roles and responsibilities of various staff members and parents in providing programs to meet the career and vocational education needs of mildly and moderately handicapped students. Designed to be relevant to the specific needs of supportive services personnel, this manual is organized into five sections. The first section provides an overview of vocational and career education of handicapped students from the perspective of supportive services personnel. Topics covered include legislative implications, roles and responsibilities, and vocational education. The second section, which makes up the largest part of the document, contains a specific responsibilities grid that specifies role responsibilities for the following personnel: blind and visually handicapped teachers, career development assistants, classroom aides, dental hygienists, pupil transportation personnel, hearing therapists/interpreters, home and school visitors, instructional advisors, occupational therapists, orthopedic aides, paraprofessional shop training assistants, photographers, physical therapists, psychiatric consultants, school nurses, school community coordinators, speech and language teachers, and vocational education project assistants. The final three sections consist of a summary of these persons' roles, an annotated bibliography, and selected readings. (KC)
