||Curricular approach to support the transition to adulthood of adolescents with visual or dual sensory impairments and cognitive disabilities
This handbook supplement, for administrators and supervisors, is part of a packet intended to aid educators, families, and adult service providers to facilitate the transition from school to adult life in the community for students with both cognitive disabilities and visual or dual sensory impairments. Emphasis is on preparation of students for adult lifestyles through transition planning and community based instruction, including vocational experiences. An introduction notes the administrator role in assuming leadership at both the systems level and building (or program) level. The next section identifies issues in the administration of community-based instructional programs including scheduling student time; utilization of staff, parents, and volunteers; transportation to and from community sites; liability issues; funding community-based activities; orientation and training of staff and parents; and vocational experiences. Considered briefly are the role of the administrator in transition planning and interagency councils. Appendices include: a list of five references, a sample Individualized Transition Planning form, state offices of Title vi-c coordinators, and a discussion guide for a staff orientation film. (Db).
