Vocational Assessment and Programming for Handicapped Students: A Team Effort in Houston Independent School District.
Deans, Beth Buckles; Guess, Carolyn
The paper describes a vocational program combining assessment and training of handicapped students through a centralized vocational assessment center, parent/student counseling, community survey of occupational opportunities, and curriculum modification and development. Three levels of assessment are conducted (prevocational skills, interests and aptitudes, and work samples). Sample procedures and tests for each level are described. Assessment data are then used to make decisions about vocational alternatives (curriculum options and vocational placement in sheltered workshop, prevocational laboratory, vocational adjustment class, special vocational and regular vocational programs). Specific profiles of students are matched with profiles of vocational alternatives. (CL)
