Guidance Services for the Physically Disabled Two-Year College Student: A Counselor's Manual.
State Univ. of New York, Albany. Coordinating Area No. 4.
This manual, developed to aid in the counseling of handicapped students, is divided according to the various institutional components with which the mainstreamed disabled student deals during the college years. The first section outlines the role of the counseling office in recruiting and preparing for handicapped students, and in serving them during admissions and registration periods, during each semester of attendance, and after graduation. The second section presents challenges to the faculty and discusses the contributions they can make to the successful acclimatization of their handicapped students to college life. In addition to providing information on financial aid resources, the third section discusses the role of the financial aid office during pre-admission, admission, and first semester phases of contact. The roles of the health and placement offices during each of these periods are covered in the fourth and fifth sections, while the sixth and seventh sections offer ways of accommodating handicapped patrons in the library and bookstore. The eighth section, dealing with the physical education and recreation needs of the handicapped student, is followed by a section on physically handicapped student representation in student government. The final sections cover self-help organizations and resources, and the role of administrative officials. Extensive resource lists and bibliographies are included. (MB)
