Career Education for TMR--It's For Life!
The author presents an overview of career education curriculum and activities for trainable mentally retarded (TMR) individuals from birth through adult life. Infant stimulation programs, Head Start, and Pre-Primary classes provide the foundation for success in the TMR programs in elementary and secondary schools. Career education leads to future placement in a job in the community, in a sheltered workshop, or as a worker in the home. Community programs are available to both children and adults for further education of a specialized nature or for recreation, such as Special Olympics and Very Special Arts Festivals. The auditory portions of presentations on classes of elementary school age TMR children is outlined to illustrate how career education helped students increase their employment potential and job placement qualifications.
