Vocational Counselor for Special Populations Manual. Revised.
Kearns, Donna; And Others
This manual contains basic information to guide vocational counselors for special populations as they work with students enrolled in vocational programs at the secondary and postsecondary levels. It begins with a brief overview of the role of the vocational counselor for special populations. The survey, the responses to which formed the basis of the role of the vocational counselor for the development of this manual, is provided. Relevant legislation is then discussed. The main body of the manual is divided into five areas of responsibility: (1) counseling and advocacy; (2) program development; (3) assessment; (4) career development and transition services; and (5) contacts and meetings. The sixth section addresses the needs of postsecondary service providers. Each of these six sections begins with an overview of the area of responsibility and concludes with a listing of resources that help to identify sample forms or sources of further information regarding that particular topic. The final section on meeting the needs of students who have limited English proficiency offers suggestions for administrators and teachers and names, addresses, and telephone numbers of resource people. A glossary and 33 references are appended. (YLB)
