Intended as a resource and guide for teacher educators, the document presents information on training in vocational programming for special needs disadvantaged and handicapped students in public schools, with emphasis on the adolescent and adult population. Section I reports on the current situation in preparation of vocational and special education personnel to work with special needs students. Guidelines and strategies for teacher education coordination are considered in Section II. Section III describes 25 specific programs preparing personnel to serve special needs students and special needs personnel. Usually included in each description are names and addresses of staff members, an overview of the program, a brief outline of purpose and offerings, and some future program directions. In Section IV, 12 existing programs for special needs students are briefly described. Section V provides two action plan instruments, one for a university-based institution and the other for action at the local education agency level. A bibliography of approximately 30 resources for special needs personnel preparation and a bibliography of instructional resources displayed during two national teacher education workshops are presented in Section VI. The final section consists of a guide to obtaining federal assistance for special needs vocational and career programming. (IM)
