Development of Prevocational Training for Deaf/Blind.
Caples, Jeff D.; And Others
Based on the assumption that visual and auditory impairments are frequently accompanied by limited communication and social skills which are necessary for vocational success, this document reports a study on the development of prevocational training programs for the deaf and blind. The report first defines the needs of this special population and how the data were obtained. The establishment of an interagency collaboration to evaluate the project activities and provide additional information is then described. The development, implementation, and evaluation of both the staff training program and the parent training program are also presented. The major portion of this document reports the development, implementation, and evaluation of the project curriculum. An equipment list, information sources list, and glossary are included. (BM)
