Description [Washington, D.C.] : Distributed by ERIC Clearinghouse, 1977 
61 p. 

One of a series of seven modules developed to improve the knowledge and skills of vocational educators who are or will become involved in teaching handicapped students in regular education settings, this module, concerned with communication impaired students (those who are deaf or hard of hearing and those who have speech impairments), is designed to (1) explain the meaning of a communication handicap--what it is, what the range of severity is, and how it affects the student's vocational performance, (2) present the vocational educator with guidelines for establishing and carrying out a plan of individualized instruction for the student, and (3) provide listings of resource agencies and further readings to assist the vocational educator who is working with the student with a communication handicap. Important points in setting up an individualized instructional program are considered and suggestions are made for modifying existing programs to overcome problems. Two final sections cover (1) bibliographic sources and resource agencies and persons to contact for assistance, and (2) a set of problems/questions designed to enable the vocational educator to check his or her understanding of the ideas presented in the module and to apply the principles discussed to his or her own teaching situation.
