Teachers and Occupational Therapists: A Partnership for Children with Special Needs (Pre-Vocational).
Rourk, Jane Davis
Occupational therapists should work cooperatively with special educators and vocational educators in the prevocational and vocational education of handicapped adolescent students. The occupational therapist's knowledge of disabling conditions, the therapeutic relationship, and methods of adapting tools and equipment are of particular value in such an interdisciplinary team. A prevocational program for the handicapped should stress such necessary aspects as attitude toward work, punctuality, appearance, attitude toward coworkers, attitude toward supervisor, speed of work, concentration/attention, personal hygiene, and social skills. Handicapped adolescents also need experiences to provide appropriate career awareness. (DB)
