Rehabilitation Programs in the Public Schools; A Handbook for Counselors and Supervisors.
Means, Howard, Ed.; Hammett, Ron, Ed.
The work experience program of the Department of Vocational Rehabilitation, which provides vocational, educational, and social experiences for mentally handicapped adolescents while they are still in the school setting, is described. Information is given on the Department's responsibilities, on methods used to bridge the gap between the student's school experiences and gainful work experiences, and on ways to assist in the evaluation of the student's potential and to bring ancillary services to the student which schools cannot provide. Program funding, administrative structure, guidelines for implementing the program, and descriptions of the in-school work experience program, the physically disabled program, and the junior high program are outlined. An appendix provides samples of a proposed budget, office supply list, group counseling topics, and other information on program provisions. (WW)
