Vocational education for youth with special learning needs is receiving increasing emphasis throughout the United States. Title II of the Education Amendments of 1976 (P.L. 94-482) requires states to spend at least 30% of their federal vocational dollars on vocational education programs for the handicapped (10%) and disadvantaged (20%) youth. This, coupled with the provisions of the Education for All Handicapped Children Act of 1975 (P.L. 94-142) and recent vocational rehabilitation legislation, is forcing new relationships amongh vocational education, special education, rehabilitation, and school psychology. This is due to the fact that under provisions of these acts practically all secondary school students now eligible for special education services are also eligible for services through vocational education and rehabilitation statutes.
