A Program for Prevocational Instruction for Adolescents with Severe Behavioral Disorders.
Gable, Robert A.
The article presents a detailed description of an integrated program that includes functional life-related academics, social skills training, and both simulated and actual time-limited work experience for severely behaviorally disordered youngsters (5-17 years old). The academic-remedial curriculum focuses on instruction in areas deemed essential to future vocational success. The social skills curriculum includes goals of following directions, appropriate language, interacting with peers and adults, and developing self-control. The prevocational component uses either simulated or time-limited work experience to emphasize work-related concept learning. (CL)
