A National Survey of Career Development Programs in Residential Schools for the Deaf.
Lacey, David W.
Surveyed were 66 residential schools for the deaf concerning career development programs at the schools, as perceived by superintendents. Comprehensive career development services were seen to include vocational instructional programs, vocational counseling, vocational evaluation, referral services, and placement services. Statistical data obtained covered current career development services in residential schools in 1970, projected career development services for 1971-76, and superintendents' perceptions of projected professional manpower and training needs, including appropriate curricula and professional preparation for vocational teachers and counselors. Information obtained was related to implications of labor market trends for vocational curricula and employment of deaf persons. (KW)
