Parents. Career Planning and Vocational Programming for Handicapped Youth.
Minugh, Carol J.; Morse, Dian
This parent's manual, 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 to moderately handicapped students. Designed to be relevant to the specific needs of parents, the manual is organized into three sections. The first section provides an overview of vocational and career education of handicapped students from the parent's perspective. Topics covered include legislative implications, placement and evaluation, the Individualized Education Program, career education, vocational education, competency-based instruction, and job placement and follow-up services. Parents' responsibilities, in terms of the specific responsibilities grid, are discussed in the second section. The final section contains a summary of the parents' and family's role in the education of handicapped students. (KC)
