Occupational Counseling for Physically Handicapped Students: A Demonstration and Training Project--Phase II.
Goldman, Leo; Flugman, Bert
Reported are results of the second year of a demonstration and training project to develop and test a model for training counselors to promote the vocational development of secondary level special education students. An overview of the project covers the need for the project, features of the new model, program objectives (including the design of an occupational counseling program for mainstreamed physically handicapped high school students), preservice activities (such as selection of the schools and interns), and project conferences. Outlined in a second section are such program components as emphasis on work and career, a developmental/outreach/activities approach, field trips to colleges and non-academic schools, guest speakers, evaluation of field trips and speakers, development of a newsletter, parent meetings, supervision and inservice training of interns, and dissemination and publicity. In Section III, the counselor is described as someone who will organize, plan, arrange, visit, find services that are not readily available, and at the same time serve as models for the students. In a final section, the student population is described and evaluative information from scores on the Career Maturity Inventory and responses to a Career Interview are presented. Appended are a sample Career Interview form, a counselor activity guide, a counselor activity report form, excerpts from a newsletter for parents, a counselor guide for student information form, and an outline of statistical data.
