These factors include a list of occupational groupings in which qualified mentally handicapped individuals can perform; a list of major recruitment sources for employers seeking to hire mentally handicapped workers; guidelines for helping the employer decide what kind of work the applicant can do; helpful hints for conducting the job interview; orientation ideas to help the new worker adjust; follow-up assistance; and advantages of planned social events.
