(The survey determined design and implementation procedures of these programs.) Section 2 presents a three-stage systems approach to program development and suggests activities for implementing each stage related to the area of vocational programming for special needs learners. These three stages are outlined: program planning, program implementation, and program evaluation. Appendixes contain the interview form used in the program survey and the names and addresses of the directors of personnel preparation projects funded by the Office of Special Education in the area of career/vocational programming.
