The Secretary of Special Education of Puerto Rico has been searching for ways to offer appropriate special education services for young people between 13 and 21 years of age whose educational level does not allow them to benefit from current prevocational or vocational services. At present groups are being organized to offer services for development of independent living skills. This manual is designed to facilitate the development of such services in school districts. Services, their development, and their functioning are described and three models are presented for offering these services: (1) independent living groups of 15 to 18 students; (2) independent living centers for more than 18 students; and (3) independent living groups at a prevocational level. A curriculum is suggested for each of these approaches, and the equipment and materials needed are described. Some examples are given of work programs that are possible. (SLD)
