When Handicapped Children Grow Up.
The newsletter focuses on the transition from school to work for individuals with handicaps. The changing employment scene is examined as are the implications for the education of secondary students with handicaps. Among educational implications cited are the needs for curricula in occupational survival skills and for teamwork among school personnel. The importance of interagency collaboration is emphasized. Generally low levels of hiring handicapped workers are noted, but examples of innovative approaches to expanding employment and training opportunities through interagency linkages are pointed out. Implications of the Job Partnership Training Act are briefly reviewed. Opportunities in both higher education and the arts are explored as illustrations of ways in which the gap in services can be bridged at the community level. (CL)
