Transition to Non-Categorical Vocational Training That Utilizes Computer Assisted Educational Intervention and Nontraditional Child Study Team Functions.
Adams, William H.; Bielicki, Raymond J.
Because it must place special needs students as well as regular students in vocational training programs, the Salem County Board for Vocational Education has initiated a non-categorical vocational training program model. Developed in response to the general practices concerning placement and a need for an individual vocational plan for students who are classified as special needs students, the model involves the following processes: (1) integrating basic data from the academically-oriented Individualized Education Program (IEP) with vocational assessment results in a plan of education intervention through non-categorical placement; (2) implementing educational intervention or services based on the individual student needs through the supportive relationships of nontraditional child study team members applied directly to staff and students; and (3) directing efforts toward desired outcomes in the areas of entrance-level occupational skills, development of related academic skills, and a pursuit of behavioral progress involving reliability and general responsibility factors related to employment.
