A Comprehensive Model: Vocational Preparation for Learning Disabled and Behaviorally Disordered Students and Vocational Assessment and Transition Objectives.
Dick, Marlene
The paper describes the efforts of five school districts, five private agencies, and an area vocational-technical school to meet the vocational needs of learning and behaviorally disabled students. The consortium developed a four-phase plan to meet these students' needs: (1) cooperation to set up school-based vocational evaluation services; (2) career exploration and preparation with courses in daily living skills, job readiness, and personal-social skills; (3) vocational preparation through the area vocational school, cooperative occupational education, work study or special classes; and (4) liasion with area junior colleges, rehabilitation agencies, and business and industry. Concerns related to assessment and follow-up were identified and levels of assessment (both formal and informal) were specified to remediate the problems. A bank of objectives to match terminology was also developed for aid in using data from vocational reports for individualized education programs. Consortium members further identified curriculum materials and assessment instruments corresponding to goals and objectives. A final consortium effort addressed educators' concerns over inadequate time to offer both academic and vocational instruction. Appended materials include a list of transition objectives and related curriculum concerns, and information on specific vocational assessment instruments, and various skills checklists. (CL)
