Developing a Programmatic Emphasis in Vocational Special Needs Education.
Phelps, L. Allen
The Programmatic Emphasis project was conducted at the University of Illinois to build the university's capacity for addressing the problems of serving special needs youth and adults in vocational education. A series of activities were undertaken to design and implement a preservice, inservice, and graduate-level instructional program; a research program; and public service activities. These activities were implemented over a 4-year period with extensive faculty involvement in the design and implementation phases. The project sought to use multi-disciplinary expertise in formulating instructional, research, and service programs. Evaluation of the project showed a favorable impact. (The programs developed during this project are included in this document.) (KC)
