Laws and Regulations to Meet the Vocational Needs of Handicapped Students. Self-Help Booklet 1.
Warden, John W.; Lehrman, Raymond H.
This publication on laws and regulations is the first in the Self-Help series of five booklets designed for Alaska administrators and teachers to improve vocational services provided to handicapped pupils. It begins with a checklist of implications for administrators and teachers. Major laws and regulations which influence vocational education for the handicapped are then described. These include the Education for All Handicapped Children Act, Vocational Education Act Amendments (1976), Rehabilitation Act of 1973, and Vocational Education Programs Guidelines for Elimination of Discrimination and Denial of Services on the Basis of Race, Color, National Origin, Sex, and Handicap. Key phrases and terms associated with the laws and the handicapped are then defined, and other related laws summarized. A discussion of the role of the administrator and teacher in making the laws work follows. Questions for further discussion are provided. Information on resources is also presented, including a listing of newsletters and journals; an annotated list of major national organizations and publishing companies who can provide further information on the laws, legislation, and litigation matters pertaining to the handicapped; and a bibliography on the laws.
