Program and Functional/Vocational Curriculum for Mildly and Severely Handicapped Students in Self Contained Classrooms. (Grades K through 12).
Piercy, David; Niems, Mike
This guide describes the development and implementation of a functional/vocational program for self contained severely and mildly handicapped students in grades K-12. The model emphasized instruction in skills needed by students to live as adults in the least restrictive way. Elementary children receive instruction in self contained classrooms and secondary students at a vocational living skills center. Nine steps in program development are discussed: identifying issues and concerns; developing and planning program criteria; collecting data and information; analyzing the information and developing goals and objectives; developing a format and placing goals in a hierarchical form; reviewing documents; revising and writing the final draft; implementing the program; and monitoring and evaluating the program. The bulk of the document is composed of the curriculum which specifies objectives in 11 areas (pre-language, pre-instructional response, academic readiness, functional academics, social skills, home living, personal living, community living, leisure skills, prevocational, and career awareness skills).
