Sixteen techniques are described and their strengths and weaknesses discussed. The second paper identifies and describes group techniques for generating strategies to overcome barriers to vocational education for the handicapped. Five techniques are described in detail and their strengths and weaknesses considered. The third paper identifies procedures for use in estimating costs and allocating resources within the context of the legal and policy directives of the Vocational Education Amendments, Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act, and P. L. 94-142. Primary focus is on costing and resource allocation to remove barriers to program accessibility.
