An Inventory of Job Options for Persons with Upper Extremity Impairments and Less than a College Education. First Edition. Research Report RT-4.
Alfred, Wayne Gray
This job inventory documents thirty-seven successfully employed, upper-extremity-impaired individuals in Houston, Texas. The inventory format for each contains three sections. The client profile contains basic identifying information, medical and functional data, and vocational information. The job profile presents basic identifying job information, employment requirements, functional and physical demands of the job, and description of duties. The client/job profile provides an assessment of the client's job performance by the client's supervisor or employer, client's compensatory or work modifications, wages and benefits, and client's job satisfaction level. These supplementary materials precede the inventory: introduction describing the project and need for participants, potential uses, and two indexes. (Potential uses include use by rehabilitation counselors to develop job options and placement goals, vocational educator evaluators' reference for developing more appropriate work samples, rehabilitation engineers' guide to identifying jobs to be modified or changed, and use by business and industry to determine jobs for handicapped.) One index presents the inventories in ranking order from jobs requiring the least upper extremity functional abilities and general physical demands to those requiring the most. The second categorizes clients according to bilateral or unilateral upper extremity impairments, the ranking from those with least to most functional abilities. Recording forms for the three profiles are appended. (YLB)
