Colloquium Series on Career Education for Handicapped Adolescents. 1976.
Purdue Univ., Lafayette, IN. Dept. of Education.
Texts from videotaped presentations which were part of the project "Interactive Television Colloquium Series on Career Education for Handicapped Adolescents" are presented in this document. (The project focused on responding to the need for preservice and inservice training for those individuals who are responsible for preparing handicapped students--particularly mentally handicapped--for meaningful employment.) The first two presentations, titled "Career Education: Where We Came From, Where We Are, and Where We Should Be Going" and "Developing Career Awareness: The Foundation of a Career Education Program," are by Oliver P. Kolstoe. The first presentation discusses the development of career education for the handicapped from a historical perspective. The future of secondary programs for the mentally retarded is also covered. The second presentation serves to provide the special education teacher with ideas about programs and curricular materials to enhance career awareness. A number of commercial materials are described in detail. The third presentation, "Career Exploration: An Integral Part of the Career Education Program" by Gary M. Clark, discusses various aspects of career exploration for the handicapped adolescent. The final presentation, "Preparing the Handicapped for Gainful Employment" by Fount G. Warren, focuses on the shortcomings of typical secondary school programs for the mentally retarded. (SH)
