Gladden, Bonnie; And Others
This document presents the manual for a training workshop for rehabilitation counselors on the delivery of services to persons with learning disabilities. It describes how counselors are trained in the workshop to: (1) use five criteria to establish eligibility; (2) apply the case management system to the classification of learning disabilities as a primary handicap; (3) assemble the existing case history data which is relevant to a client's school performance and medical history; (4) organize written inquires to the psychological examiner in order to document the five criteria necessary for classification in the learning disabilities category; (5) become sensitive to the behavioral impact of nine types of sensory learning disabilities through simulation activities; and (6) practice, via a role-played case study, the complete rehabilitation process. Topics discussed include the differential diagnosis of learning disabilities; rehabilitation processes for learning disabled clients; referral/application; diagnostic evaluation; a description of nine types of learning disabilities as job limitations and restrictions; and the Illinois management system and its relationship to people with learning disabilities. The appendices include the pretest/posttest on learning disabilities with answer key. The manual provides step-by-step directions for running the workshop and includes overheads and activities. (ABL)
