A Model for Training Special Needs Students in a Regular Vocational-Technical School Setting.
Ruzicka, Paul L.; And Others
The industrial production program is a regular education program which was designed to provide vocational training to handicapped students. The program incorporates individual programing, close supervision, small group instruction, and academic support in a skill based framework intended to produce specific occupational competencies in students who lack cognitive, psychomotor, and/or affective skills prerequisite to vocational instruction. The competency based program is aimed toward preparing the student for competitive employment and mainstreaming the student into the regular Area Vocational Technical School programs. Students receive academic support through an individualized resource center and participate in related services (such as speech and language therapy and occupational therapy consultation) as needed. Demographic information on students reveals a variety of handicapping conditions represented for years 1981-82 and 1982-83. The program maintains a lay advisory committee which guides the program's services for students. (CL)
