The CAP Approach to Modifying Vocational Programs for Handicapped Students. Vol. 3: Health Occupations.
Gugerty, John J.; Morehouse, Nancy
This teaching guide, the third 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 with focus on health occupations education. Main emphasis is on (1) discussion of CAP functioning as these may affect an educational setting; (2) ways to assess and determine functional and dysfunctional capacities; and (3) prescribing for students with various dysfunctions. The latter section provides lesson plans and task descriptions, e.g., making an occupied bed (for nursing assistants), teaching an auditory learner in the Occupational Therapy Assistant Program to improve study skills, "Assertive Behavior Techniques" for those with affective dysfunctions, or developing answers to "problem questions" during job placement. Subsections also deal with some of the problems instructors of the handicapped encounter and such topics as instructing blind students, job redesign, and setting realistic employment goals. A separate section looks at audiovisuals and instructional materials, while the appendix offers a structured exercise in muscle recognition for physical therapy assistant students. (CP)
