Intended for use as an aid by personnel working with handicapped clients, this implementor's manual and resource guide presents model components of the Vocational Habilitation for Severely Handicapped Youth Project. It contains 6 sections (each describing a major component of the program model) and a bibliography/resource guide. Each section contains the name and purpose of the major model component along with a corresponding graphic flow chart, a sequence of steps and procedures necessary to implement each model component, and questions for evaluating each model component. Topics covered in the 6 sections are analyzing labor needs (gathering information about jobs, telephone contacts, visiting potential job sites, selecting appropriate jobs); job analysis (analyzing on-the-job and related skills, completing job analysis formats); client assessment (reviewing previous assessment data; gathering information on home communities; assessing parental aspirations, client job preferences, and vocational and related skills; conducting staff meetings); client training (establishing cooperative agreements with employers; training for acquisition, production, and related skills; monitoring client progress); client placement and followup (exploring employment sites, determining interim work program needs, securing competitive placement, providing placement training, following up client progress with employers and co-workers); and staff roles and competencies (developing staff roles, reviewing staff progress, establishing job descriptions).
