Continuation of Job Related Physical Capacities Project (VIEW Interface). From July 1, 1982 to June 30, 1983. Final Report.
Marshall, John L.; Kirkland, Sandy
The Center for Career Development Services in Tallahassee, Florida, recently updated and revised its Job Related Physical Capacities Project (JRPC). The project provides career information as well as specialized information about how disabled persons can expect their handicaps to influence their occupational choices and how the handicap can be accommodated and/or overcome in the actual job situation. During the latest phase of the project, the Center revised all previous work from the original JRPC project, updated information so that it would be compatible with existing career information systems, enhanced the original Aids and Accommodations Manual, and prepared the materials for pilot testing. Suggestions from many persons who had used the original project served as guidelines for improving the formats used. The occupations were presented in an easily understood manner, as were the handicapped aids for the Aids and Accommodations Manual. All coding systems/references were made to be used with Florida VIEW (Vital Information for Education and Work) as well as Florida CHOICES (both are computerized career information systems). The 102 occupations with their physical demand information on microfiche and the Aids and Accommodations Manual in printed form will be used by the field test sites as well as other interested organizations. From this pilot test, all suggestions for improvement will be considered for further growth and enhancement of the Job Related Physical Capacities Project. (Author/KC)
