Mainstreaming Handicapped Students into Cooperative Education: A Handbook for Vocational Educators.
Iwler, Irvin H.; And Others
This handbook is intended to serve as a resource for cooperative education coordinators who must instill in handicapped students an awareness and grasp of the job-seeking and job-maintenance skills that are so vital in today's competitive job market. Assembled in response to questions asked by vocational educators in Pennsylvania, the guide is organized into five sections. Each section contains strategies that may help handicapped students improve specific problem areas that may deter their successful job training placement. The five sections focus on these areas: verbal characteristics, personal/physical characteristics, self-concept/personality characteristics, work characteristics, and handicap characteristics. The guide also contains a glossary and a list of resources. Appendixes to the document contain forms and samples useful in implementing the strategies. (KC)
