Career Planning for the Blind. A Manual for Students and Teachers.
Crawford, Fred L.
Written by the Administrator of Education and Professional Placement Sciences of the New York Association for the Blind (The Lighthouse), this manual was designed for use in a classroom situation, in a tutorial setting, or by a rehabilitation center as an informal training program. It also forms the basis for a correspondence study course as offered by the Hadley School for the Blind. Included in the manual is information on evaluating the labor market and the world of work and a presentation of methods and techniques for selecting a job. For those who lose their sight in adulthood, such chapters as the one on the effects of blindness in planning for employment can help in adjusting to the new environment of the blind. Other chapters deal with topics such as: (1) What Is a Career? (2) Factors That May Contribute to Individual Success, (3) Community Resources, (4) Measurement and Evaluation, (5) Self-Appraisal, (6) Should You Have Help in Getting a Job? (7) New Careers in Business or Self-Employment, and (8) Planning for Retirement. Also included is a Workbook for Career Planning. (Author/JS)
