This document contains home economics occupations-related materials to help teachers and parents teach access skills to Missouri junior high and high school special needs students who want to pursue a vocational program in child care, custom sewing, or food service. Access skills are defined as those skills needed to access vocational education programs and be successful in the world of work. An introduction explains this document's relationship to other documents about Missouri vocational education and describes the document's contents. The next three sections contain competency lists, skills checklists on which teachers can record student competency, and instructional activities relevant to the chosen vocation. The activities cover each of the five major areas (math, physical demands and working environment, aptitudes, temperament, and vocational) of Missouri's Vocational Readiness Inventory. Glossaries, tool lists, teacher and student worksheets, and lists of resources are included. The document concludes with four instructional modules on preparing a simple recipe, identifying safety hazards and executing preventive measures and safety rules, distinguishing between freezer and refrigerator functions and appropriate food storage, and identifying and matching sizes. The modules include task analysis sheets and directions for instruction. (CML)
