An Estimate of the Job Types Potentially Available to the Retarded. Project SAVE.
Robinson, Jacques H.; Morrison, Lorraine
This publication reports results of an attempt to estimate the types of jobs potentially available to retarded workers by analyzing the job titles in the fourth edition of the Dictionary of Occupational Titles (DOT). Literature is reviewed that focuses on factors inhibiting the development of the full range of job options of the retarded. Discussion follows of the procedures used to assess which jobs offer strong potential as placements for the educable mentally retarded. The appendix, which comprises over 280 pages of the report, consists of an alphabetical listing of the 6033 job titles that meet the criteria established. Their Worker Function Codes fall at or below the following levels: Data--3, People--6, Things--3. Job titles in caps are Base Titles used in the body of the DOT. Those in lower case are jobs related to the base title with the same job code. For each title, there is an industrial designation that indicates location of the occupation, types of duties associated with the occupation, products manufactured, processes used, and/or raw materials used.
