Meeting the Vocational Needs of Hearing Impaired Students. October 10, 1978-September 1, 1979.
Kavanaugh, Raphael R.
A project was conducted to develop a workshop designed to improve the vocational guidance programs and services for hearing-impaired students in the secondary school setting. This goal was accomplished by developing an in-service training program to provide school personnel with increased awareness of the unique learning concerns of hearing-impaired students in the classroom. Major project activities included a needs assessment to identify the special learning concerns and vocational counseling needs of hearing-impaired students. Following the needs assessment, training modules were developed to make school counselors and occupational specialists aware of hearing-impaired students' vocational needs. Additional components were designed to provide counselors with skills to more effectively meet these needs. Evaluation of the workshop format and associated components was accomplished by field testing in four separate sessions. Results indicated that participants were highly positive toward all evaluation issues. (Appended material includes the teacher in-service component, participant response data charts, workshop format, participant workbook, and the slide/tape script.) (LRA)
