Plummer, Jack M., Ed.
The publication, a summary of a two-day workshop for education and rehabilitation personnel working with the mentally retarded student-client, contains the rationale for work-study experience programs, guidelines for establishing and maintaining a program, and information on various stages of the process. The following papers, which are included in the document, were presented: John R. Peck (Department of Special Education, University of Texas, Austin), "Why We Need Work-Study Programs"; Stanley Fudell (Department of Special Education, Texas Tech University, Lubbock), "Planning and Implementation of a Work-Study Program"; and Tom J. Hicks (Director of Special Education, Arkansas State Department of Education, "Status of Program Standards and Accreditation for Work-Study Programs in Arkansas". Two role-playing panel discussions, also included, were held to exemplify the establishment of a work-study experience program and to provide insight into the cooperative nature of the program and familiarization with the student-client.
