This supplement is designed to aid vocational home economics teachers teaching handicapped students in the regular classroom. The first three sections provide background information on legislation affecting teaching of handicapped students in regular classrooms (Public Law 94-142), and definitions of terms associated with these laws; an explanation of the assessment/placement procedure; and information on Individualized Educational Programs (IEPs). The fourth section defines various handicaps and suggests ways teachers can adapt lessons to include students with these handicaps. Handicaps included are mental retardation, hearing impairment, orthopedic handicaps, visual impairment, and learning disabilities. Lists of resources for working with each of these groups also are included. The fifth section provides instructions on completing instructional plans, while the sixth section contains classroom management and teaching strategies. A list of resources and annotated bibliographies also is included. (KC)
