Health Careers Exploration for the Handicapped. A Guide for Counselors and Teachers.
Nunley, Rachel L.
This manual provides guidelines for teachers of career exploration and for guidance counselors to help assist the handicapped student in making a realistic selection of jobs or occupations in the health arena. It contains descriptive information about 49 jobs and occupations in the health field. Selection has been limited to those jobs and occupations that require two years or less as minimum entry level preparation necessary for employment. The Dictionary of Occupational Titles was used to identify selected jobs and occupations in the health field. The job demands are described and the core physical and intellectual requirements are broadly specified as a beginning point in occupational selection for the handicapped. Information about worker functions, interests, preferences, aptitude, and preparation is given for each job or occupation. The general functions of the workers are found in the job descriptions and further clues to expectations are noted in the interest/preference/temperament and aptitude category. In addition, the guide provides definitions of handicapping conditions and suggestions for counseling handicapped students about health care occupational choices. (KC)
