Survey-Train-Place: Vocational Preparation for the Severely Handicapped Student.
Rusch, Frank R.; And Others
The paper reviews a community-oriented behavioral approach to vocational training and suggests behaviors to be acquired before handicapped students leave the public schools. The initial survey of the community is designed to identify possible community job placements and determine relevant vocational behaviors within each of the jobs. Survey methods include verbal reports and direct observations. The second section of the report focuses on training severely handicapped persons to become competent workers and includes information on training behavior (shaping, discrimination, generalization) and managing behavior (reinforcement, extinction, and punishment). The third section of the model, placement in community-based vocational settings, includes three critical features: cooperating with potential placement staff, monitoring student performance, and advocating for fair and equal treatment.
