Work Experience Education for Individuals with Exceptional Needs at the Secondary Level in California. Summary.
Barber, Louis S.
The paper summarizes efforts in California to provide handicapped secondary students with work experience education. Three types of work experience programs in California are noted (exploratory, general, and vocational work experience). Selection criteria for students include age level, full-time pupil basis, approval of parent/guardian and school guidance service, and appropriate vocational or educational goal. Employer selection criteria (including knowledge of the program and willingness to supervise and keep records) are also listed. Self-assessment and reviews by consultants are among the program evaluation methods identified. Elements of successful programs are administrative support and qualified personnel. A related project operating classroom training and part-time work experience is described. (CL)
