Life Centered Career Education: Modified Curriculum for Individuals with Moderate Disabilities.
Loyd, Robert J.; Brolin, Donn E.
This scope and sequenced functional curriculum is designed for use in schools and adult training environments with individuals who have moderate disabilities. The first chapter explains the curriculum's origins in the original Life Centered Career Education Curriculum and the research project which determined the need for and modifications necessary to make the curriculum more appropriate for individuals with moderate disabilities. An extensive chart correlating competencies and subcompetencies of this curriculum with the original curriculum is also included. The second chapter, comprising the major portion of the guide, presents instructional implementation strategies for the three domains of the curriculum: daily living skills, personal-social skills, and occupational skills. Charts break these domains into 20 competencies as well as subcompetencies and objectives. Classroom training activities and home/community-based training activities are suggested for each objective. Chapter 3 briefly addresses assessment and instructional planning strategies and integration of the curriculum into the Individualized Education Program. Appended are the Competency Rating Scale-Modified for Life Centered Career Education Modified Curriculum for Individuals with Moderate Disabilities, master forms for use with the curriculum, a modified Individualized Education Program form, and related resources.
