Corthell, David W.; VanBoskirk, Charles
This volume is intended to assist providers of services to handicapped youth in helping youth with disabilities to make the transition from school to work, postsecondary education, or other post-school activities. Chapter I is an overview of this discussion and the topic. Chapter II discusses the historical and legislative background of policies to ensure access and protect the rights of persons with disabilities. Chapter III introduces a diagrammatic framework for conceptualizing the student's movement through the service and outcome continuum. The basic principles governing this movement and the interrelationship and comparability of the services are discussed. Chapter IV concerns building of the collaborative team to avoid unnecessary duplication and overlapping services. Chapter V describes issues related to the dynamics of change, including job territories, differences between power and authority, and techniques for starting a dialogue with other professionals. Guidelines are provided for teams and individuals as they approach the task of implementing change. Chapter VI on elements of change describes categories of interagency collaboration, common interagency elements, and present practices/trends in coordination between vocational rehabilitation, special education, and vocational education. Chapter VII offers comments on some additional issues. An annotated bibliography and list of references are appended. (YLB)
