Vocational Education for Students with Special Needs; An Administrator's Handbook.
Altfest, Myra, Ed.; Hartley, Nancy, Ed.
The administrator's handbook contains seven sections, each dealing with a specific aspect of vocational education for students with special needs. Section 1 describes the process of identifying handicapped and disadvantaged students. Section 2 covers assessing the needs of such students. Section 3 discusses developing district priorities to meet the student's needs in terms of personnel, special services, facilities and equipment, and special programing. Section 4 presents a systems chart which summarizes in graphic form the flow of action and interrelationships between the various elements of the vocational education process. Section 5 describes various community agencies, their major emphasis, and the administrator's role in coordinating their resources for optimum use by the school system. Section 6 discusses Individual Prescriptive Education, one solution that has proved successful in satisfying the needs of handicapped and disadvantaged students. Section 7 covers evaluation for establishing accountability, upgrading program efficiency, determining services needed, recognizing problem areas, and meeting program objectives. One-third of the document consists of four appendixes which provide sample referral sheets, student data sheets and needs profiles, and instructions for the use of disadvantaged and/or handicapped supplemental services.
