Special Needs for Special People: Improving Vocational Guidance and Counseling for the Handicapped. Annual Report.
The annual report describes goals and objectives, implementation procedures, and results, evaluation, and recommendations of the Piedmont Virginia Community College project to improve vocational guidance and counseling for handicapped students. The project had the following goals: to provide an opportunity for key faculty, staff, counselors, and students to learn appropriate techniques to communicate with and become more aware of handicapped students; to develop a method of identifying handicapped students and notifying faculty to aid in the students' smooth transition into their chosen curriculum; and to investigate the need for a coordinated community effort in the vocational placement and referral of handicapped individuals. Objectives were implemented through an intensive 4 day sign language workshop and a 1 day handicapped awareness class, implementation of an early notification system for faculty who will be teaching handicapped students, and a community luncheon for area professionals involved with vocational placement of the handicapped. Appended are forms and materials used in the program. (DB)
