Puzzled About Educating Special Needs Students? A Handbook on Modifying Vocational Curricula for Handicapped Students.
Tindall, Lloyd W.; And Others
The purpose of this handbook is to help vocational educators and others provide appropriate vocational education for handicapped students through the modification of vocational programs. (A companion user's guide and an annotated bibliography are also available--see Note.) Possible uses include vocational instruction, administration, interagency and interprofessional cooperation, preservice education, inservice education, and research. Chapter 1 is an introduction. Chapter 2, Working with Others, examines the process for working with resource persons while teaching special needs students. It also covers potential resources located inside the school and out in the community. Chapters 3-8 deal with these specific handicapping conditions: emotional impairments of learning, learning disabilities, mental retardation, visual impairments, hearing impairments, and physical impairments. Each chapter is divided into three parts: (1) recognition of handicapped students, (2) strategies to modify vocational programs and to instruct students, and (3) information on existing exemplary programs and techniques already developed in vocational classrooms. Details concerning formal and informal vocational assessment are found in chapter 9. Chapter 10 presents nine models of vocational service delivery to handicapped students. (YLB)
