Extending Horizons: Inservice Guide for Preparing School-Community Teams.
McKinney, Lorella A.
This inservice guide and six companion documents comprise a series developed for assisting disabled persons in their transition from secondary and postsecondary vocational education to work. The model is designed to prepare support teams of school-community persons. This guide is intended for use by the field coordinator, administrator, and/or any other designee of the school-community site with responsibility for coordinating resource persons for supporting handicapped individuals in transition. It provides planning resources for conducting the preparation experiences for the support teams. Section 1 describes the inservice model and addresses the administrator and field coordinator roles in preparing the school-community liaison; the organization, procedures, and guidelines needed to identify those persons to be involved in the inservice experiences; and the youth to be supported. Plans for six inservice sessions follow. The following kinds of information are included for each session: session overview (time required, space requirements, purpose, objectives, content, resource requirements, activities), planning directions, content, resource information and related services, session description and plan, optional approaches, and masters. Session topics are orientation, expectations for employment, legislation and awareness, individualized education program development, employment service agencies, and job interview. A final section contains suggestions for mini-workshops. (YLB)
