Vocational Education for Students with Special Needs; A Teachers' Handbook.
Altfest, Myra, Ed.
The teachers' handbook on vocational education for students with special needs contains seven chapters, each one covering a basic area of concern to teachers of such students. Chapter 1 deals with identifying disadvantaged and handicapped students on the basis of easily recognizable characteristics. Chapter 2 covers assessing the needs of the individual handicapped or disadvantaged student on the basis of health, psychological, educational, social skills information, and work experience records. Chapter 3 discusses common characteristics and attitudes which affect learning in handicapped and disadvantaged students and suggests learning styles and teaching techniques best suited to those students. Chapter 4 provides an annotated guide to instructional materials particularly appropriate for use with special needs students. Chapter 5 discusses the procedures and expected outcomes of individual prescriptive education. Chapter 6 describes local resources and agencies and the primary services which they provide to the student with special needs. Chapter 7 briefly discusses student evaluation. A 10-page bibliography lists works appropriate to disadvantaged, handicapped, handicapped-learning disabled, and vocational education. An appendix contains sample forms useful to teachers in assessing and recording student handicaps, needs, and progress. (Author)
