Handbook for Educators Involved in Vocationally Oriented Programming for Moderately Retarded Adolescents.
Pritchett, E. Milo; Pullman, Robert J.
The handbook is designed to help teachers and administrators develop or improve vocationally oriented programs for moderately retarded students. The major topics addressed in the book were identified through a Delphi data gathering approach. Seven sections are arranged in the order that activities should occur in program modification and/or development (sample subtopics in parentheses): rationale for program development (value of work, cost benefits, legal compliance); identification of needs (role of steering committees, followup studies, identification of potential training, and employment sites); planning considerations (assessment of aptitudes, interests, and limitations); program implementation (delivery models, staff responsibilities); role of local business and industry (employment interviews, tax incentives); parent roles (participation as vocational team members, influence of development of work ethic); and service agencies' roles (interagency cooperation/coordination). An appendix presents a glossary of special and vocational education terms. (CL)
