Guidelines for Professionals Working with Persons with Special Needs Developed from the Seminar for Supervisors and Teacher Educators of Teachers of Persons with Special Needs (University of Kentucky, June 12-23, 1967).
Van Tassel, Carol, Ed.
This summary of consultative discussions is not intended to represent a definite study of the topic, but rather a beginning. Four general guidelines of themes emerged from the seminar regarding vocational education for persons with special needs: (1) Professional vocational education personnel must become more concerned with people and less concerned with program, (2) Vocational education has far more to offer persons with special needs than any other area, particularly a traditional liberal arts course of study, (3) Teachers of persons with special needs should be individuals who receive intrinsic satisfaction from working with the disadvantaged and are not bound by tradition, and (4) Persons with special needs generally migrate less than individuals who have achieved higher levels of education. Guidelines are provided in the areas of: (1) characteristics of persons with special needs, (2) characteristics of the Negro sub-culture and the additional problems of this group, (3) guidelines for teacher education programs, and (4) guidelines for programs for persons with special needs. These are general or working guidelines and will be revised, reworked and rewritten as vocational educators increase their knowledge and understandings of persons with special needs. (MM)
