Ayers, George E., Ed.
Conference proceedings of the Vocational Rehabilitation Subdivision Meetings held at the American Association on Mental Deficiency contain discussions of innovative aspects of vocational rehabilitation and mental retardation. In the area of training rehabilitation counselors, George Baroff describes the Mental Retardation Training Institute in North Carolina and Jack Van Vliet examines the use of the rehabilitation counselor intern with potential high school dropouts. An overview of cooperative educational programs and approaches for vocational training of the retarded is provided by Harold Shay. Eduardo Hinojosa examines food service training in an institutional setting, and Jacob and Irma Jaffe suggest traditional and innovative methods of manpower development. An experimental approach called Project Workout which trains the mildly retarded to be institutional attendants is described by Kathleen Orr and Harvey Snyder. (RD)
