Career Planner: A Guide for Students with Disabilities.
Smith, Gwen J.; And Others
Intended as a guide for students with disabilities who wish to enter the work force, this handbook is designed to help gather both information about the student and information to help choose a job. Chapter 1 concerns collecting health/medical information. Chapter 2 focuses on collecting vocational information--information about general job interests, skills, and abilities--through vocational evaluation. Job analysis is discussed in chapter 3; the process is described, and sample and completed job analysis forms are provided. Chapter 4 addresses job modification, including employer cooperation and information services dealing with adaptive equipment or assistive devices. Chapter 5 discusses role models and locating and interviewing them for information on jobs. Some role models are listed together with their addresses, phone numbers, and brief description. Chapter 6 provides a sample list of organizations for further assistance. Some tips for a telephone conversation on written request for information are given. (YLB)
