Prevocational Skill Development for Deaf/Blind & Severely Handicapped.
Olson, Robert L., Ed.; And Others
Intended for teachers of deaf/blind and severely handicapped students, the manual focuses on teaching skills to meet the requirements for sheltered and transcommunity employment. The first section presents two approaches to teaching independent living skills (including grooming and self care). Section 2 describes orientation and mobility skills instruction in a prevocational program so that the student can meet requirements for sheltered workshop employment. Section 3 explains the movement, communication, and vocational requirements of sheltered employment from a classroom teacher's perspective. The fourth section presents diagrams and illustrations of the jigs that can be made to help in vocational preparation. Materials described are used in paper folding, collating, stapling, sorting, button sewing, cleaning, and packing. Among appended information are suggestions for individualized educational programs.
