Florida State Dept. of Education, Tallahassee. Div. of Vocational, Adult, and Community Education.
This planning guide presents an interdisciplinary team approach for improving career and vocational programs for youths with disabilities. The approach is an interdisciplinary planning process that involves identifying those things desired for students (best practices) and then working to integrate those things within the current continuum of educational programing. The guide is organized into three sections. The first section includes the following: a brief rationale for using the guide, a list of persons who should use the guide, a description of how the guide should be used, and a description of the benefits resulting from use of the guide. The second section provides detailed steps of three phases of an interdisciplinary team process for making improvements in the delivery of career and vocational services to youths with disabilities. The three phases are team building, program improvement, and action planning. Worksheets and information sheets are included. The final section provides a list of resources team leaders may want to assemble. (KC)
