These two newsletter issues are designed for users of the Council for Exceptional Children's Life Centered Career Education (LCCE) curriculum. The newsletter's goal is to inform practitioners of curriculum implementation ideas and transition issues and to provide a forum for the exchange of ideas. Featured articles discuss how one district used LCCE to develop an alternative diploma certifying students with disabilities are equipped for productive employment, independent living, and responsible citizenship; an outcome/skill transition checklist; implementing transition requirements of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act; tips for using the LCCE Knowledge Batteries for career assessment; a career center that uses the LCCE to serve adults with developmental disabilities and youth in their last two years of high school; the appointment of a board of advisors to advise on the development and maintenance of the LCCE program; and tips for using the LCCE Performance Batteries for career assessment. A LCCE user survey is also included. (CR)
