Part Time Work for High School Students.
Fredericks, H. D. Bud; And Others
A high school program to prepare severely handicapped students for supported community work changed its original purpose, to develop jobs that would provide full time support work in the community after graduation, to include part-time possibilities. Advantages of incorporating part-time work include eliminating boredom and providing greater mobility. On the job taining features a total task teaching method and attention to associated work skills. Volunteers are occasionally used in lieu of the trainer. Two-year results indicate that part-time work is a viable alternative for students with moderate and severe handicaps. Community acceptance has been high, an important factor in a school and community-based effort. Tables are appended depicting such aspects as student placements, tasks taught to students, and associated work skills. (CL)
