Career Development for Handicapped Students.
Miller, Jacqueline A.; And Others
Intended for use in planning appropriate career services for handicapped students, this handbook for local education, rehabilitation, and related agencies provides an outline of the types of services and programming that may be needed. An introduction discusses interagency collaboration for career development services for handicapped students and the development of interagency agreements among special education, vocational education, and vocational rehabilitation programs. The seven steps in the collaboration process, which includes the continuum and delivery of services, are then described. They are (1) determine goals, objectives, and priorities for service; (2) list assets and concerns; (3) understand roles and responsibilities of each agency; (4) assess needs of handicapped student populations; (5) review continuum of services; (6) determine changes needed to build collaboration; and (7) develop a county action plan. Copies of documents and sample forms, formats, and charts are presented for illustration. Six service delivery programs are then described. Pertinent information is provided about the vocational aspects of the individual education program (IEP), including participants in the development and the developmental sequence. Sample sections of the IEP appear. A resource section contains lists of resources for career education and annotations of vocational assessment instruments (title, source, cost, and description).
