Programming for Handicapped Students at the Secondary Level: Responding to Public Laws: Administrator's Manual.
Moore, Jean J., Ed.; Engleman, Vance S., Ed.
Designed in response to three pieces of legislation (Public Law 94-142, Section 504 of Public Law 93-112, and vocational education legislation in Public Law 94-482), the administrator's manual provides information on planning the full spectrum of appropriate services needed in educational programs for handicapped students at the secondary level. The manual is divided into four areas: the Operational World which focuses on the development of appropriate services; the Student World which focuses on the kind of information necessary to assure appropriate student placement; the Training World (divided into programs, and instructional materials and equipment sections) which focuses on the cascade of placement options; and the Work World which focuses on the maximizing of career options. For each of the four areas major functions and components are identified, the related statutes are cited, and recommended practices are detailed. Additional empty columns are provided for inclusion of state laws and regulations, and for jotting down identified local resources. Among the functions covered in the areas are the following: personnel development, individualized educational programs, individual vocational training, adaptive equipment and adapted work settings, and job placement. Appended are a directory of contributors and a conference schedule. (SBH)
