Pyne, Peg; Martin, John
Information in these two booklets answers questions that administrators or potential students may have concerning adult education programs for persons with developmental disabilities. The first booklet, which is designed for administrators, answers 21 questions concerning the establishment, content, and promotion of these programs. The first nine questions and answers focus on existing programs across the country in terms of types of courses offered, fees, integration of students into regular courses, and course content. The remaining questions and answers look at administrative considerations relevant to establishing and marketing a program, staff selection, funding, scholarships, student transportation, and the special health needs of developmentally disabled students. The second booklet is designed as an informational aid for potential students. It first outlines learning opportunities that are generally available for developmentally disabled adults and answers questions students may have concerning the types of courses they may want to take; the times courses are available; sources of information concerning college courses; actions that can be taken if the student does not find the course in which he/she is interested; registration procedures; costs; course prerequisites; transportation and grading. The booklet concludes with a list of factors to be considered by the student in deciding whether or not to enroll in a course. (JP)
