The Auxiliary Secretary of Vocational, Technical, and Higher Skill Instruction of Puerto Rico has the responsibility of offering prevocational services to students with disabilities. In the prevocational phase, the student receives academic instruction and acquires the knowledge and skills of general employment. This teacher's guide, in Spanish, contains a list of 61 prevocational skills, with an objective for each and some activities that will help develop the skill. These skills include daily living skills that contribute to success in employment, such as punctuality, completing a task, accepting supervision, and accepting responsibility, as well as some more specific skills in comprehending workplace conditions and requirements such as the basics of Social Security and the use of the telephone. Sixteen appendixes contain more detailed advice for specific areas, including a Social Security number or preparing a resume. (Contains 4 references.) (SLD)
