LD-Case Training Manual for Vocational Service Providers.
Nebraska Univ., Omaha. Div. of Educational and Student Services.
The project, "Learning Disabilities--Community Advocacy, Support, Employment, Education" (LD-CASE), was initiated to expand the personal/social, educational, and employment options of individuals with learning disabilities. The project is designed to provide LD adults with experiences that will increase their self-advocacy skills, establish community-based forums for personal growth and mutual support, and provide continuing education opportunities to professionals who work with adults with LD. This training manual for vocational service providers utilizes a trainer of trainers methodology; it provides an outline for discussion, structured applications of content, and supplementary materials for each topic. Manual topics include: (1) learning disability overview; (2) the emotional aspects of learning disability, coping skills and self-advocacy skills; (3) pragmatic communicative competence; and (4) functioning in postsecondary or employment settings. The bulk of the report comprises copies of overhead transparencies to accompany each manual topic. (Contains 18 references.) (JDD)
