Occupational Opportunities for the Physically Handicapped. Part B. Manual.
Uthe, Elaine F.
This manual presents the master lists of 206 job titles of 167 different Dictionary of Occupational Titles (DOT) code numbers which were held by physically handicapped graduates/completers of vocational programs as determined by a business and industry survey and graduate followup. (The project itself is reported in CE 026 163; survey and followup results are in CE 026 164.) Designed to aid vocational educators at all levels in working with physically handicapped persons, this manual contains nine types of information: directions for use of the manual, guidelines for vocational counseling, guidelines for program planning, teaching suggestions for each type of impairment, guidelines for personnel managers and employers, job descriptions from the DOT for each job title in the master lists, master lists of job titles held by physically handicapped employees, annotated bibliography of reading materials, and resource list. The master lists of job titles are arranged in four tables: (1) in alphabetic order, (2) by DOT code number, (3) by type and severity of impairment/handicap, and (4) by vocational program providing training.
