Coping Skills.
D'Zamko, Mary Elizabeth; And Others
A high school program is described that uses an informal survey to help teachers identify potential academic, social, and career oriented problems facing mainstreamed handicapped students. These problems and suggested intervention procedures are listed for study/coping skills of time management, memory systems, listening ability, compensatory skills for dealing with textbooks, study skills, and test taking skills. Names of representative commercial materials to improve academic performance are provided. Difficulties in the social skill areas of self awareness, self esteem, and decision making are considered and approaches to improving the skills suggested. Career awareness is the third major area of focus. Techniques for helping students determine their aptitudes and become aware of the types of jobs available are briefly covered. (CL)
