Secondary Special Education Program Manual.
Lee, Frank M., Ed.
The purpose of this programming guide is to assist local and intermediate Michigan school districts in planning, developing, and implementing programs and services for secondary special education. The first chapter, "Delivery of Secondary Programs and Services," outlines the program's philosophy, effective program development, a program continuum, rule considerations, curriculum development, and development of individualized education programs. Chapter II, "Guidelines for the Development of a Special Education Credit-Based Curriculum Leading to a High School Diploma," presents the secondary special education curriculum, administrative rules pertaining to special education, and requirements of Michigan general school laws. Chapter III deals with personal adjustment education. The next four chapters cover prevocational education, vocational education, vocational evaluation, and work-study services. A chapter on transition services presents a model which focuses on transition planning, community placement, referral to supportive services, and program exiting procedures. The final chapter deals specifically with programming for the trainable and severely mentally impaired. Appendices, which make up the bulk of the document, contain student progress report forms, a transition plan form, a follow-up survey form, vocational evaluation report form, other administrative forms, course information, and tables and charts to support the main text. References are provided, arranged by topic. (JDD)
