Hohenshil, Thomas H., Ed.; Anderson, Wm. Tucker, Ed.
These conference proceedings deal with the role school psychologists can play in the design and delivery of vocational education programs for handicapped persons. The papers describe the general state of the art for vocational education programs as well as specific programs such as career planning, programs funded by CETA (Comprehensive Employment and Training Act), individual educational plans developed by parents and teachers, and vocational assessment procedures. School psychologists are urged to develop specific competencies in career development, vocational education programming, assessment strategies, and counseling techniques for the handicapped. New university training programs are suggested in the field of vocational school psychology. The need for appropriate Individualized Education Programs (IEPs) and parent participation is also emphasized. Additionally, a conference summary is provided along with two appendices containing the conference program and a bibliography on vocational school psychology. (JAC)
