The Vocational Adjustment of the Older Disabled Worker: A Selective Review of the Recent Literature. Volume II of Final Report.
A review of the literature concerning the vocational adjustment of older disabled persons shows that 10-15% of these individuals are interested in being employed. With rehabilitation and training, these older persons can be helped to some level of employment. The major deterrents have been the negative attitudes of employers and the lack of vocational rehabilitation programs available. On the basis of the data reviewed, the author recommends demonstration programs, a clearinghouse for rehabilitation information, research and training centers, and new social-psychological approaches to the vocational problems of older persons.
