Kansas Career Development Competencies and Life Skills for Transition.
White, Warren J.
This document lists the competencies and skills necessary for the successful transition of special education students into the work force and the community. When fully implemented by a school, these competencies and skills assist the school and the Kansas Department of Rehabilitation Services in meeting the requirements of the state law on transition planning for developmentally disabled persons. Directions are provided for use of these guidelines as a needs assessment by teachers, administrators, parents, and local business oweners on the steering committee. Two blank lines precede each statement. On the first, the evaluator indicates, by a letter according to a given scale, whether the students develop the competency/skill in the current curriculum. On the second line, the evaluator indicates, by a number according to a given scale, a priority level for the competency/skill. Career development competencies and life skills are divided into these categories under the general heading of attitudes, values, and habits: unspecified, human relationships, occupational information, and acquisition of actual job and daily living skills.
