Supportive Services for Special Needs Students in Mainstreamed Vocational Programs. Final Report.
National Evaluation Systems, Inc., Amherst, MA.
A project was designed to develop guidelines which would give direction to local school personnel in the implementation of supportive services for the special needs population participating in regular vocational education programs. Following a literature search, telephone interview instruments were developed and administered to school administration and support personnel within selected West Virginia mainstreamed vocational programs. The purpose of the interviews was to determine supportive services provided as well as those needed among the programs and to identify problems and needed improvements in those services already being provided. Findings were reviewed by a task force of West Virginia vocational school specialists from across the state and a preliminary content outline was drafted: (1) vocational evaluation/remediation, (2) instructional support services, (3) guidance and counseling services, (4) job placement/follow-up services, and (5) special support services. The task force also reviewed the full working outline and the final draft. (The interview instruments for support personnel and administrators are appended. The product, "Supportive Services for Special Needs Students in Regular Vocational Programs," is available separately--see note). (LRA)
