Jernberg, Donald E.
The Salina Area Vocational Technical School has a special vocational program which provides selected vocational training courses for students with physical, emotional, or intellectual handicaps. The program offers vocational counseling, placement services, work evaluation, job readiness training, and vocational training tryouts. Vocational training tryout classes (described in terms of length and tasks involved) include: food service, commercial art, aircraft fabrication, offset printing, custodial maintenance, auto-body repair, small engine repair, welding, diesel mechanics, nursing aides, and drafting. Handicapped students who have successfully completed the work evaluation and exploration phases of the special program are then qualified to enter the regular vocational training program, which includes regular, modified, and short-term courses. A training tryout evaluation sheet, an outline of the vocational training objectives and procedures, and a listing of the educational interpreting services available are included. (LH)
