The Learning Disabled Adolescent: An Overview of Affective Education and Career Development Practices.
Kendall, William S.
Thirty learning disabled (LD) students enrolled in secondary regular classes, 30 LD Ss in vocational training classes, and 30 LD Ss integrated in regular secondary classes and receiving additional assistance in learning resource centers were compared on measures of self concept and career attitudes. Results from the Attitude Scale of the Career Maturity Index and the Illinois Index of Self Derogation were analyzed, and significant differences were found among the means of the self concept and career attitude scores of the three groups. Self concepts of LD Ss in vocational training and learning resource centers were lower than that of regular class Ss. The learning resource group demonstrated lower career attitude scores than the vocational training and regular class Ss. Findings supported vocational training classes as the most efficacious in shaping career attitudes of LD adolescents. (CL)
