Hastings, Jim; Scott, William D.
The report discusses Project Hope, a program to prepare deaf high school students to enter into employment after graduation. The program, which can be adapted for use with many other types of severely handicapped high school students, offers some low-cost solutions to problems such as limited rehabilitation facility resources, legal restrictions, low academic achievement levels, role confusion, financial limitations, and limited school resources. Other aspects discussed include communication systems, parental involvement, and assessment. (DLS)
