Vocational Curriculum for Visually Impaired Persons.
McLaughlin, Phillip J.; And Others
Presenting a range of occupations with a cross-section of task-analyzed job skills and teaching procedures, this curriculum guide is divided into ten chapters. The first chapter summarizes vocational programming for visually impaired individuals and describes how to use the curriculum. The next three chapters present information on three areas in vocational rehabilitation of visually impaired individuals: (1) prevocational training techniques, (2) competitive employment training, and (3) traditional and alternate methods of vocational evaluation. The remaining chapters present the curriculum itself. It is divided into six vocational subdomains: prevocational skills, clerical occupations, fabrication and repair of musical instruments occupations, horticultural occupations. Subdomains contain the following sections: job description, specific skills, possible job placements, and instructional strategies. The text concludes with an annotated bibliography of selected vocational programming references. (LRA)
