Vocational Education for the Handicapped: The University of Wisconsin-Stout Special Education Program. Includes Final Report.
Brock, Robert J.
The University of Wisconsin-Stout Special Education Program prepares secondary teachers to teach vocational and life function skills. Incorporating vocational education, vocational rehabilitation, and special education into a single degree program, graduates facilitate the transition of handicapped individuals from school to the world of work. Followup studies of graduates suggest that teachers trained in this manner are more able to serve the needs of handicapped persons than teachers trained in the more traditional academic and elementary oriented programs. (A final report on the university's teacher traiing program is included.) (Author)
