This teaching guide, the second in a five-volume series (see note), concentrates on the CAP (Cognitive, Affective, and Psychomotor domains) approach for teachers to accomodate handicapped students in vocational classes, particularly business and office education.

Chapter 4 furnishes a brief discussion of prescriptive planning and program modification. Chapter 5 provides exemplary curriculum modification and teaching methods in the "telephone usage" area of business and office occupations education. It includes suggested activities and learning outcomes, and techniques for teaching telephone usage to students with dysfunctions. The thirty-page appendix discusses teaching strategies for the emotionally disturbed. (CP)
