Training School and Rehabilitation Counselors To Provide Cooperative Transition Services.
A collaborative program between two university departments aims to better prepare preservice and inservice school counselors and vocational rehabilitation counselors to cooperate in facilitating the transition of individuals with disabilities from school to community living. The program offers preservice (master's level) rehabilitation and school-counseling students 9 semester hours of training that includes a special education elective, transition competencies, and a one-semester practicum. Student evaluation of the transition course indicated that there were too many speakers and too little time for coverage of 14 competencies. Preservice students in school guidance completed transition practicum requirements in concert with their part-time counseling practicum, while rehabilitation counseling students completed the transition practicum requirements as part of their full-time internship. In general, process and product ratings by students and supervisors were very positive. Includes tables of transition competencies and practicum activities. (KS)
