Secondary Vocational Training for LD Students and Its Relationship to School Completion Status and Post School Outcomes.
Thornton, Helen S.; Zigmond, Naomi
Illinois Schools Journal, v67 n2 p37-54 1988
The current service delivery structure of vocational education does not hold at-risk learning-disabled (LD) students in school. LD graduates who complete skill-centered vocational courses are still vocationally disadvantaged when compared to nonhandicapped peers. Vocational education is not related to LD postschool success.
