Vocational Curriculum for Multihandicapped Students with Cerebral Palsy: A Data-Based Approach.
Wehman, Paul; And Others
The paper describes a data-based vocational curriculum for multiple handicapped adolescents and young adults with cerebral palsy. Three care studies illustrate the different types of curricula that may lead to employment in the areas of micrographics filming, computer skill, and clerical work. The approach incorporates a task analysis orientation with modeling, social reinforcement, and frequent feedback. Objectives and skill sequences were drawn from observation of identical jobs in companies in the community. In each setting, attention was paid to modifying or adapting tasks where necessary to help improve vocational performance. Participants in each of the areas displayed competence after training. (CL)
