Road to Success: Helping Young Adults with Learning Disabilities Plan and Prepare for Employment
Johnson, D. Richard; Mellard, Daryl F.; Lancaster, Paula
TEACHING Exceptional Children, v39 n6 p26-32 Jul-Aug 2007
This article reviews "Road to Success" as a curricular innovation that addresses needs of adolescents with learning disabilities (LD) as they transition from school to employment or postsecondary educational settings. A variety of curricula exist for aiding the general populace of job seekers in planning and preparing for employment, but few exist for job seekers with LD of any age, including those first-time job seekers transitioning from school to adult life. "Road to Success" is the product of past research projects, and is currently part of a study involving VR clients, including transition students. The "Road to Success" curriculum relies on a combination of strategic and direct instruction, that is, the Strategic Instruction Model, a research-validated instructional technique for teaching adolescents with learning difficulties. (Contains 2 figures.)
