Colloquium Series on Career Education for Handicapped Adolescents. 1977.
Purdue Univ., Lafayette, IN. Dept. of Education.
This second series of presentations was designed as a sequel to the first (see related note), which established the foundations for career education relative to adolescents with handicapping conditions, particularly mental handicaps. This series, consisting of five separate papers, begins with the sequence of steps that follow from that base, i.e., classroom practices, counseling and evaluation, job placement, and training on the job. "Career Education in the Classroom" by Nancy Pollard takes some of the broad elements of career education and makes specific suggestions for their implementation in the classroom. "Career Counseling for Handicapped Persons" by Paul R. Salomone relates the theoretical underpinnings of career counseling to the particular needs of the handicapped person. "Prevocational Evaluation of the Handicapped Adolescent" by Gary M. Clark systematically analyzes various prevocational evaluation approaches (mental testing, job analysis, work sample, and situational assessment) and suggests concurrent cautions, limitations, and advantages in their use. "Job Placement: How to Approach Employers" by James S. Payne deals with the issue of job placement and includes recommendations for the analysis of job sites, employers, and "sales" techniques. "On the Job Training" by Joav Gozali concludes with a synthesis of one's relationship to the world of work and implications for placement and growth through conflict in productive activity. (SH)
