Rice, Eric; And Others
Focusing on vocational education programs that have accommodated the handicapped, this resource book is designed for use with a planning system for improving local secondary and postsecondary program and facilities accessibility. The first of three major sections presents brief descriptions of seven model programs, including (1) the Special Education Rehabilitation Vocational Education (SERVE) program; (2) the Related Vocational Instruction Plan, State of Georgia; (3) the Career Education Center, Denver; (4) the Liaison Counselor Model, Florida; (5) the Career Training Center, California; (6) the Lyndon B. Johnson Space Center, Houston; and (7) the Illinois Network of Exemplary Occupational Education Programs. The second major portion describes exemplary practices which were judged to be a good solution to a frequently occurring problem in schools serving the handicapped. The final section outlines the efforts of three states (Arizona, Indiana, and Tennessee) to promote placement of handicapped students in vocational education. (LRA)
