Vocational Education for the Handicapped: A Model for Appropriate Placement and Effective Teaching.
Arko, Carl; And Others
Three papers discuss issues in providing vocational education services to handicapped children. In the first, "Vocational Education Speaks to Special Education," G. Rackliffe and N. Pearson consider aspects of appropriate placement and describe a handbook produced to address vocational issues for special educators. The handbook covers such topics as vocational-technical programs, learning activities, and the Assessment of Vocational Readiness (a 16-item instrument measuring readiness to profit from vocational training). The next two papers, "Teaching the Emotionally Impaired Student" by G. Schirmer and "Teaching the Learning Disabled Student" by R. Riegel, are part of an inservice training program in which special education staff share information with vocational education staff. Among appendixes is a sample unit on electricity. (CL)
