Vocational Supports
 
 
 
 

 

For transition aged students, 16 to 21, IDEA requires that they be taught vocational skills. Post-school ISPs can also include these goals.

HOWEVER EMPLOYMENT RELATED TASKS CAN BE TAUGHT EARLY AND CAN INCLUDE SUCH "SOFT" VOCATIONAL SKILLS AS REMAINING ON A TASK TO COMPLETION.

 


Field trips to authentic vocational settings allow students to experience the world of work.

EVEN VOLUNTEERING IN AN AUTHETIC WORK SETTING CAN HELP STUDENTS LEARN "SOFT" VOCATIONAL SKILLS.
