VEEAP Procedures and Training Handbook. Vocational Education Evaluation and Assessment Process for Special Needs/Handicapped Students.
Pennsylvania State Dept. of Education, Harrisburg. Div. of Research and Evaluation.
This handbook is intended to instruct school personnel in the use of the Vocational Education Evaluation and Assessment Process (VEEAP) with secondary special needs and handicapped students who are being considered for placement in vocational programs. (Designed to ensure that each special needs student receives a comprehensive vocational evaluation, the VEEAP model provides for an individualized evaluation and assessment process by an evaluation team made up of special education staff from the local school district or intermediate unit, special education coordinators from the vocational-technical programs, and counselors from the local Office of Vocational Rehabilitation.) Covered in the individual sections of the handbook are the following topics: the relationship between the VEEAP and the Individualized Education Program (IEP), the VEEAP team, the VEEAP model, the preparation and assessment phases of the process, placement decisions, program planning, and program implementation. The two appendixes to the guide contain a stock clerk and materials handling work exploratory report form, an exploratory test, and a chart comparing commercial evaluation systems. Also included in the guide is a removable set of suggested forms that can be used for duplication. (MN)
