The Special Needs Student in Vocational Education: Selected Readings.
Urban, Stanley J., Ed.; Tsuji, Thomas, Ed.
The book is a collection of readings about special needs children in vocational education. The volume has been prepared as a sourcebook for courses concerned with the preparation of special needs teachers, for teacher educators interested in understanding more about handicapped and disadvantaged students and the competencies needed by those who teach them, and for the current or potential vocational educator who has little background in the education of the handicapped or disadvantaged. The volume focuses on ideas and issues related to the general problem of delivering special educational services; the role of law in assuring that the special needs child receives vocational training; handicapped and disadvantaged children in vocational education; career education and the child with special needs; the importance of proper personnel in implementing programs; and the importance of understanding sources of assistance. Articles are drawn from a wide variety of sources; some are empirical while others are simply descriptive. Articles offering opposed viewpoints are placed back to back, to illustrate the editors' stand that there is no one best way to provide for special needs. (Author/AJ)
