A Report on the Development of Vocational Programs for Exceptional Children.
Reported are results of a (1974-75) project in a New Hampshire school district which assessed the vocational needs of handicapped children in that district, the potential for their employment in the community, and the school potential for vocational programs. Provided is information such as the number of children by handicaps and present status and the geographic locations of children interviewed; a list of businesses interested in employing the handicapped, and descriptions of sheltered workshops in the area; and an evaluation of the special education program in the school district and a statement of philosophy and future objectives. Major recommendations cited include the need for employment of a vocational rehabilitation counselor and a social resource field person to develop vocational programs in special schools and classes. Also included are materials developed for the study such as handbooks for interviews of parents and of businesses and reporting forms for gathering information on vocational programs, businesses, and social agencies serving the handicapped.
