Seven Steps to Employment for Learning Disabled Students.
Tindall, Lloyd W.
A seven step approach designed to help special and vocational education teachers, parents, and others to develop appropriate vocational/job training programs for learning disabled adolescents and young adults is described. Assessment and evaluation include educational, psychological, and vocational measurement. Provision of support services is explained to include designation of an advocate to coordinate school-community resources and link the student with other services and professionals. Development of interagency linkages with vocational rehabilitation as well as with private industry is considered. Assistance to vocational and other educators focuses on identification and instructional modification (including adapting for learning styles). Skill development information covers functional survival skills, learning how to learn, and error correction. Twelve job placement strategies are suggested, and the importance of planning on lifetime education is noted. (CL)
