American Foundation for the Blind, New York, NY.
Presented are reports from 10 states on present status of and future plans for career education for blind and visually handicapped children and adults. The reports represent a major aspect of a conference sponsored by the American Foundation for the Blind in which state leaders in special education, rehabilitation, and vocational education considered strategies for collaborative efforts. Typically considered in the reports are ongoing programs, the roles of the three component divisions, state needs assessments, and timetables for future programs. States represented by reports are Arizona, Connecticut, Illinois, Kansas, Louisiana, Maryland, Mississippi, New Jersey, Ohio, and Texas. States with the most extensive cooperative services are given to be Maryland and Illinois, which have either existing programs or pilot programs offering occupational information from kindergarten on, prevocational work-study programs, and, in the case of Illinois, systematic motoring and evaluating of career education activities in public schools. Included in appendixes are lists of conference participants, speakers, and resource persons; proceedings from special interest sessions; and a discussion on issues in career education. (MC)
