[Development of a Vocational Training Model for Severely Handicapped and Deaf-Blind Adolescents.]
Teaching Research Infant and Child Center Newsletter, v9 n4 Jun 1981
The newsletter describes the development of a vocational training model for severely handicapped and deaf blind adolescents. The need for innovative vocational models in the secondary school is discussed. Three stages of the vocational training model are presented--assessment in five job samples (food service, groundskeeping-agriculture, janitorial-maintenance, office-clerical, recycling); extensive training in two of the five samples; and training resulting in long term employment. The role of the vocational trainer is seen to include training the teacher, the teacher's assistant, and student volunteers to carry out the direct training; updating program data; scheduling future placements; identifying Stage 2 and 3 placements; and observing the teacher, assistant, and volunteers as they conduct vocational training.
