Vocational Resource Educator Handbook (Third Edition).
West, Lynda; And Others
This handbook is designed to serve as a guide for vocational resource educators (VREs) in Missouri. It contains basic information that is helpful to VREs as they work with students with disabilities in vocational education programs. It begins with a discussion of the role of the VRE, a nonteaching position. The following section summarizes pertinent legislation. The handbook identifies seven goals for VREs: (1) develop a communication network; (2) assist in assessment and appropriate program placement; (3) facilitate the mainstreaming process; (4) serve as a resource to vocational instructors; (5) provide job placement and follow-up; (6) provide inservice for other staff; and (7) evaluate a VRE's program. Each goal statement is followed by a series of questions and answers that may be translated into objectives and activities to accomplish the goal. Resources and additional references are listed for each goal to provide other sources on the topics. Appendixes include a glossary, postsecondary VRE resources, information on services for disadvantaged students and sex equity/nontraditional students, Missouri definitions of disabilities, and a history of the Missouri VRE model.
