Chern, Hermine J.; And Others
The report contains a summary of conclusions and recommendations concerning career education programs for handicapped students in Philadelphia as well as a specific report for each of the six projects funded during the 1979-80 school year. The following projects are described: Consumer and Homemaking for Retarded Educables, Consumer and Homemaking for Retarded Trainables, Individualized Instruction for Special/Vocational EMR Programs, Resource Room Program, Vocational Education for Bilingual Students, and Vocational Program for the Handicapped. Each program report provides information on category and project area, proposal number, budget, person responsible for project, location, project description, project history, project objectives, project implementation, the evaluation plan, the attainment of objectives, and conclusions and recommendations. All programs were found to be effective to varying degrees. Recommendations included such suggestions as providing assistance with facilities and scheduling, involving more regular teachers in order to overcome their reluctance to utilizing special services, and expanding programs to support the increasing number of mainstreamed mildly handicapped students.
