Serving Handicapped Students in Vocational Education: A Guide for Counselors. Information Series No. 186.
This paper discusses some of the specialized knowledge, role expansion, and guidance and counseling techniques designed to help school counselors and other school personnel assist handicapped students with their life development. A section on pupil personnel service workers examines the necessity for such workers and the federal laws affecting education programming. The section on career development is divided into discussions of personal-social development needs (such as realistic work experiences) of handicapped individuals. The next section explores five elements of vocational assessment: (1) the importance of vocational assessment; (2) parents as partners in the assessment process; (3) federal laws and testing requirements; (4) special considerations for testing the handicapped; and (5) the role of the counselor. This section also includes short descriptions of ten vocational evaluation systems. The final section explores the transition from school to work, including suggestions concerning job seeking, job development, job placement, and job follow through. (CT)
