Graham, DeDe, Comp.
Written for counselors working in Migrant Education Programs, this guide summarizes counselor responsibilities and includes specific information to assist migrant students seeking post-secondary education in Oklahoma. The introductory section provides a short statement of the migrant counselor's role in identifying handicapped students, achievement/aptitude testing, public relations, parent involvement, individual and group counseling, information dissemination, and financial aid. The second section discusses the needs assessment procedure for determining the objectives of the migrant guidance and counseling program. It includes points to consider in a survey of all eligible migrant children--academic achievement, physical and health needs, cultural influences, parental support, etc. A section on testing covers factors that depress test scores and provides specific suggestions for helping migrant students improve their test taking ability. A section on financial aid summarizes the benefits and eligibility requirements of the Pell Grant, Supplementary Educational Opportunity Grant, College Work Study Program, National Direct Student Loan, Vocational Rehabilitation Grant, and Oklahoma State Tuition Aid Grant. A final section lists Oklahoma's junior colleges, four-year colleges and universities, and vocational-technical schools. (JHZ)
