The Crucial Role of Connections in Vocational Systems for Serving the Handicapped: Guide for LEA Personnel. SEP Technical Assistance Guide (No. 2).
Flippen, Alexis; And Others
Intended for local educational administrators and practitioners, the technical assistance guide addresses student related and program related connections in providing vocational programs for handicapped students at the secondary level. Following an introductory section, section II looks at the structure of vocational systems by explaining the importance of connections (e.g., use of information about skills needed for employment to shape vocational assessment). Section III describes a vocational system which incorporates connections between the following components: (1) vocational assessment/career counseling, (2) career counseling/vocational training, (3) vocational training/placement, (4) placement/work experience/followup, (5) work experience/followup/placement, (6) placement/employment, (7) placement/continuing education/vocational training, and (8) employment/vocational training. Connections which were presented in section III are critiqued in section IV. The final section offers general guidelines that local education agency personnel can use to examine the connections in their vocational systems aimed at handicapped students. (SW)
