Brolin, Donn; And Others
Designed for vocational educators, seven sections of information concerning vocational education for students with handicaps are provided in this resource guide. Section I provides an overview of major federal legislation, the Individualized Education Program (IEP), and definitions of specific handicaps as defined by Missouri statutes. Section II describes the role and function of a vocational resource educator. Guidelines and considerations for vocational assessment and evaluation are presented in section III. Also included in this section is an annotated bibliography of various assessment instruments (aptitude, interest, and work evaluation). Section IV discusses four areas of concern for accommodating handicapped students: physical environment, curriculum, time requirements, and equipment and materials. Instructional considerations for teaching handicapped students are presented in section V. Topics include the IEP, preparing the classroom environment for mainstreaming, teaching techniques for specific handicapping conditions, classroom organization and management, and community and parent involvement. Section VI discusses job placement, employment, and follow-up. The concluding section contains a list of resource materials (books, guides, bibliographies) and a list of directories of services and materials. (JH)
