Proceedings of a Symposium on Habilitating the Mentally Retarded (Mankato, Minnesota, February 11, 1967).
Ayers, George E., Comp.
Sponsored by the Rehabilitation Counseling Program and the Department of Special Education, both at Mankato State College, and by the Minnesota Council for Exceptional Children, the conference was designed to strengthen communication and cooperation between special education and vocational rehabilitation planners and practitioners, and thus to contribute to the process of habilitating the mentally retarded. The keynote address, by Mrs. Hubert Humphrey, a member of the President's Panel on Mental Retardation, considers "Contemporary Needs in Habilitating the Mentally Retarded." The first panel discussion, centering on directions for a continuum of education and vocational rehabilitation for the mentally retarded, treats the following: developing a vocationally oriented curriculum, agreements between special education and vocational rehabilitation, and administrative directions in school-work experience programs. The second panel on cooperative work-study programs in Minnesota discusses the roles of the special class teacher, the vocational adjustment coordinator, and guidance counselors. A list of conference participants and their addresses is included. (DP)
