Building Vocational Education for the Handicapped.
Tindall, Lloyd; Gugerty, John J.
The Wisconsin Vocational Studies Center presents a 12-session course called "Program Modification and Prescriptive Teaching for Handicapped Students." Working with the administrators and teacher inservice committees of Wisconsin's vocational, technical, and adult education districts, the center staff designs the program to meet the specific needs of the teachers in each class. The staff is prepared to offer instruction in 10 disability areas and 7 content areas. Initial instruction prepares the teachers for the process of prescriptive teaching and curriculum modification (model included). The remainder of the 12 sessions offer instruction in working with students who have specific or multiple disabilities. (The authors include a description of the preparation process in three of these areas: Preparing teachers for work with emotionally troubled students, with the learning disabled, and with hearing impaired students.) To support the inservice program a free loan library on handicapped and special education materials is provided for any teacher's use. In addition, the staff of Wisconsin Vocational Studies Center has already published one document on vocational/career programs for the handicapped and is currently developing a series of publications to assist vocational educators of handicapped learners.
