Vocational Education for Special Needs Students: Competencies and Models for Personnel Preparation. Final Report. A Report on the National Workshop on Vocational Education for Special Needs Students (January 13-15, 1976).
Phelps, L. Allen; And Others
This report describes a workshop designed and implemented as a team effort by teachers from the vocational education and special education departments at the University of Illinois and the University of Kansas. It is noted that activities at the workshop revolved around meeting the unique needs of ten university-state department teams in developing and/or expanding their programs. In addition to being useful to vocational and special educators interested in the personnel preparation process, this report is also designed for use by those individuals in local educational agencies who have the responsibility for staff development and inservice education. Part I describes the presentations and activities of the workshop, pre-workshop planning, and post-workshop followup. An evaluation of each of these major phases is also included. Part II is a description and analysis of the professional tasks which were identified as critical for personnel involved in vocational programming for special needs students. The personnel preparation models prepared by the ten attending teams are included in Part III. A list of participants, bibliography, and 11 appendixes (relating to the workshop and special education) are included. (HD)
