Through the use of questionnaires and interviews, handicapped students and graduates, teachers and employers were surveyed to determine how effective they found vocational schools to be in meeting the vocational adjustment needs of handicapped students. While results of the survey indicate that students were generally satisfied with their programs, certain components were seen as needing greater emphasis. Both students and teachers would increase job information provided for students, give them more opportunity for actual on-the job experience and provide an active placement and follow-up service. Teachers would emphasize speaking, reading and writing as essential components to any skill training. Teachers would also offer credit for work experience and provide more time in programs oriented toward individualized attention. Employers would like to see more emphasis on work related behaviors and interpersonal skills. (Author/DS)
