Teaching severely handicapped students to perform meaningful work in nonsheltered vocational environments : draft by Lou Brown( Book )

4 editions published in 1983 in English and held by 52 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The paper criticizes the practice of providing sheltered occupational environments to severely handicapped individuals and considers ways in which public school programs and adult service systems can be arranged to maximize vocational functioning. Following an operational definition of meaningful work, the chapter analyzes reasons for the restrictive nature of sheltered vocational environments, including that work related skills are rarely required or developed, instruction is not emphasized, deviant actions are tolerated, and opportunities to benefit from interactions with nonhandicapped workers are not available. Followup data is cited to show trends toward functioning in nonsheltered vocational settings. Among reasons suggested for the growth-promoting nature of nonsheltered environments are availability of a continuous flow of meaningful work, greater opportunity to acquire and perform work related skills, and a social climate more conductive to success and personal growth. Relationships between meaningful work and pay are examined, and sheltered versus nonsheltered settings are compared in terms of cost, cost efficiency, and quality of life. Timelines for direct and indirect vocational instruction are offered. The nonsheltered vocational preparation program at the Madison (Wisconsin) Metropolitan School District is reviewed in terms of its development and its progression of services from middle schools to high schools and to post school services. Characteristics of successful delivery systems for severely handicapped adults are noted, including meaningful coordination between school and postschool agencies and instructional program emphases.

The design and implementation of an empirically based instructional program for young severely handicapped students : toward the rejection of the exclusion principle by Lou Brown( Book )

4 editions published in 1973 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Reported are 15 classroom programs which were conducted (1972-73) with 14 students as part of a Madison, Wisconsin project to develop a public school instructional program for severely handicapped children. Ss are described as children who would usually be labelled custodial, autistic, or pretrainable and who would be excluded from involvement in most public school systems. The program stresses using highly structured applied behavioral analysis orientation. Included are four basic language skill programs used to teach direction following, location concept, receptive language, and expressive language. Four reading skill programs reported consist of initial sight word, color, basic alphabet, and chart story programs. Math skill programs are reported for three areas: number discrimination and labeling, basic counting and quantity concepts, and rudimentary math concepts. Adjunctive programs and papers include a prewriting program, a shape discrimination and labeling program, a paper on behavior management problems, and a description of the curriculum used with the only blind S. Appended are characteristics of individual Ss (taken from folders, teacher-observations, and parent interviews), class schedules and room arrangement charts, and forms used to evaluate students. (Ls)

5 editions published in 1972 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Collected are 31 articles on public school educational activities for the trainable mentally handicapped or the severely emotionally disturbed student in the areas of academic skills, home living skills, and prevocational training. Most of the papers are said to have been written by classroom teachers. Three articles present an overview which includes a discussion of behavioristic task analysis. Fourteen articles consider techniques of teaching academic skills and include skills such as basic spelling, reading a menu, time telling, and arithmetic computation. The teaching of home living skills is examined in eight articles and includes skills such as using a kitchen stove, preparing toast, using a cooking oven, and reading a basic grocery list. The final section, consisting of six papers, on prevocational training considers topics such as the use of fund raising materials to teach prevocational skills to retarded students and the teaching of retarded students to package golf tees in the absence of customary production supports.
