Presented are proceedings from the Bureau of Education for the Handicapped sponsored 1975 conference on research needs related to career education of the handicapped. It is explained that the conference was organized in modular fashion with participants in small and large groups exploring research needs in four basic areas: preparation of the handicapped for careers (presentations by Leonard Hall, John Kidd, Donn Brolin, E. Ross Stuckless, and Melvin Appell); exploration of career alternatives by the handicapped (presentations by Henry Colella, Chris De Prospo, and Gary Clark); maintenance and mobility in careers chosen by the handicapped (remarks by Gerald Manus); and leisure and retirement for the handicapped (remarks by Peter Verhoven, Gerald Hitzhusen, and Donald Hawkins). Top priority research needs identified by conference participants dealt with attitudes, critical incidents leading to job change, decision making, communication among personnel serving the handicapped, career education models, employability, physical mobility, and demonstration and dissemination. Lists of steering committee members and conference participants are appended. (CL)
