Aptitudes, Vocational Interest Areas, and Stated Vocational Preferences for Mentally Retarded Adolescents.
Nicholson, Charles L.; Alcorn, Charles L.
With a sample of 168 educable mentally retarded adolescents, the authors used an interview technique and a battery of standardized instruments to ascertain sex and racial differences. Significant sex and/or racial differences were found in vocational interest areas, motor skills, achievement levels, and mechanical aptitude. Recommended were picture-type vocational interest measures and prevocational as well as realistic vocational counseling. (Author)
