Vocational Home Economics for the Mainstreamed Physically Handicapped Student: The Least Restrictive Environment.
Olson, Susan J.
School building and classroom accessibility are the first factors considered in a discussion of making provisions for mainstreamed physically handicapped students in vocational home economics programs. Legal mandates are cited, and ideas for adapting food labs and sewing labs for wheelchair students and students with visual impairments are noted. General curriculum adaptations and specific teaching approaches are noted for students with physical handicaps (amputation, arthritis, cerebral palsy, diabetes, epilepsy, muscular dystrophy, multiple sclerosis, spina bifida, and speech problems); hearing impairments; and visual impairments. The teacher's role in increasing the student's social acceptance is stressed. (CL)
