Life-Centered Career Education (LCCE). This curriculum is designed to promote the development of skills that students will need to succeed in life after graduation ( Brolin, 1993; Fiore & Becker, 1994). LCCE instruction is divided into three instruction domains that include 22 competencies in all: daily living skills, personal-social skills, and occupational skills. Daily living skills refers to learning how to manage a home, family, and finances as effectively as possible. Personal-social skills involves developing independence, self-confidence, socially acceptable behaviors, and maintaining friendships. Occupational guidance and preparation involves becoming aware of diverse job opportunities, developing the necessary skills, and learning to make logical and viable job choices.


SUMMARY

The number of children in our schools who are identified as having attention deficit disorders is rising. The challenge of teaching children with attention deficit disorders and serving them appropriately in schools is increasingly recognized by all who come in contact with these children. Significant issues related to attention deficit disorders from a school perspective reviewed in this chapter include: the characteristics of ADD at difference stages of life, prevalence, coexisting conditions, historical evolution of the field, the DSM- IV, the U.S. Department of Education Memorandum on ADD, school placement for students with ADD, accommodations in the general education classroom, and promising programs for intervention.
