Preparing Vocational and Special Education Personnel to Work with Special Needs Students: State of the Art, 1977.
Brock, Robert J.
Presented is information gathered by questionnaire and direct telephone interviews on programs preparing vocational and special education personnel to work with special needs students. Outlined are data gathering procedures (sample questionnaire and interview forms are included); resulting data on operational programs, projected programs, programs with a mainstreaming emphasis, and programs which were judged not to be designed to prepare vocational/special education personnel; and observations and recommendations on program development, state teacher certification and university training program articulation, program dissemination, mandated requirements, and responses of interested persons. Listed among findings is that program information and information about adapted or developed materials in vocational/special education are practically nonexistent. Appended are a teacher certification directory, abstracts on 20 operational programs, a listing of projected programs, and a listing of programs offering one or two mainstreaming or inservice courses.
