Guidelines for Planning Post Secondary Training Programs for the Deaf Within Existing Community Junior Colleges. Final Report.
Wells, Douglas O.
Described is a program to provide 202 young deaf adults with post secondary vocational and technical training in existing junior colleges. The program is explained to include utilization of special counseling, instructional, and interpreting services. Special courses are said to cover the areas of personal management (with topics such as budgeting and the opposite sex), occupational information (including the job interview and work habits), English, and a vocational survey course. Noted is the provision of interpreters to aid students and counselors. Program results are reported to have shown that 97 of the students (48%) completed their educational objectives and transferred to other colleges or entered the occupational world, that 44 (22%) of the students were still in training at the time of the report, and that the remaining 61 students (30%) left the program because of adjustment problems or personal reasons. Appended are forms used in the program such as the student orientation schedule and the training placement report. (DB)
