Research and Trends in Employment of Adolescents with Handicaps.
Trach, John S.; Rusch, Frank R.
The paper focuses on current curriculum programming trends that appear to be facilitating the transition of adolescents with handicaps into everyday community settings. Traditional curriculum models, such as the eliminative education model and the developmental education model, have failed to enhance or improve attainment of integration into the community: recent attempts to focus curriculum outcomes on the adult life or community-referenced curriculum models appear more promising. Similarly, traditional instruction strategies, such as step training, appear to only partially prepare students for employment, whereas new curriculum models seem to incorporate strategies such as self-control, which promote maintenance and generalization. The newer curricular focuses and recent advances in teaching strategies may be key factors that ensure integration and transition into community work settings. Six pages of references conclude the report. (Author/CL)
