Huebner, Kathleen Mary; And Others
Developed as part of a project to encourage state-wide collaborative agreements between education and rehabilitation agencies involved in the transition of blind and visually handicapped students (ages 16-25) from school into the work force, the manual is intended to assist state teams of education, rehabilitation, parent, and consumer representatives in their training function. Part I presents needs, goals, and objectives in five sections focused on students, parents, professionals, adult role models, and employers, respectively. Part II presents modules for four training options: (1) individual transition plan through the individual transition team; (2) self-help group development; (3) publication development; (4) seminar/conference/workshop development. Modules typically contain handouts, specific group activities, worksheets, resource lists, examples, and references. (DB)
