Developing Job Skills for Special Needs Students. A Curriculum Guide.
Mesa Community Coll., AZ.
This curriculum guide is one of three documents developed in a community college project to meet the career and vocational needs of disadvantaged handicapped youth (mainly the learning disabled, the educable mentally handicapped, and the emotionally handicapped) by assisting them to gain and retain full-time, non-subsidized employment. The curriculum guide provides class activities designed to give training in (1) job survival skills, (2) the world of work, (3) independent living skills, (4) assertiveness training, (5) money management, and (6) interpersonal communication. Activities are also provided for a "high support system" for students who are involved in a work experience. It also contains an Individual Career Plan to help the student meet his/her career employment goals. The curriculum guide is divided into three modules. The first module, "Personal Assessment," provides a transition between high school and the community college. Module 2, "Your Work Future," is designed to further assist students who are employed by introducing the skills and attitudes most likely to insure advancement and/or job security. Module 3, "Job Search," is designed to assist the student who has lost his/her job or who wants to look for another position. Each module contains behavioral objectives, suggested methodology, materials, suggested teaching techniques, and learning activities. (KC)
