Puzzled about Educating Special Needs Students? User's Guide for the Handbook on Modifying Vocational Curricula for Handicapped Students.
Tindall, Lloyd W.; And Others
Designed to help state and local education administration personnel who are responsible for estabishing workshops or inservice training programs on vocational education of handicapped students, this guide contains materials on coordination of the steps necessary for organizing an inservice meeting. (It accompanies the handbook, which is available as CE 026 776.) Chapter 1 relates to the planning of the inservice meeting. Guidelines on such as whom to invite, where to hold the meeting, and evaluation of the meeting are discussed. The remaining chapters provide specific ideas for presenting the materials contained in the handbook. Chapters 2-10 follow the order in which materials are discussed in the handbook: (1) working with others, (2) emotional impairments of learning, (3) learning disabilities, (4) mental retardation, (5) visual impairments, (6) hearing impairments, (7) physical impairments, (8) vocational assessment, and (9) models of service delivery. Each chapter gives suggested activities and suggestions for time scheduling and lists resources. (YLB)
