Preparing for Work.
Fraenkel, William A.
The guide for educators, families, and mentally retarded young people offers four behavioral checklists to aid in the preparation of the retarded adolescent for employment. Parents are encouraged to help their children develop behaviors such as correctly dialing the telephone and using local transportation. Evaluated in the academic achievement checklist for the special class teacher are skills such as handling money and writing legibly. The guidance counselor's role is seen to include evaluating behaviors in interpersonal relationships such as accepting one's limitations and understanding the relationship between work and pay. The work-study specialist is said to be the person best able to help the student develop behaviors such as registering for employment and following up on newspaper want ads. (DB)
