Updegraff, David R., Ed.; And Others
Proceedings of two national working conferences held to discuss career education for the hearing impaired are in this volume. Administrative, counselor, and teacher representatives from schools having experience in career education attended. The report covers issues they addressed following the keynote speeches, appearing in Section 1, given by specialists on obstacles to be overcome, the relevance of career education for the hearing impaired, directive counseling from a vocational rehabilitation perspective, and how career education can meet the needs of business and industry. Section 2--What Have We Learned?--begins with the list of areas for discussion followed by separate summaries of what the three groups of participants had to say. Section 3 concerns identification of the most important and urgent issues on which consensus was sought, with votes tabulated; inservice staff training was voted most important and urgent. "Where Do We Go From Here?"--Section 4--notes the beginning of the National Project on Career Education which hopes to put ideas into action and organize technical assistance to schools participating in regionally based, inservice training programs. Appendixes contain the five papers presented and lists of participants and of pre-conference recommended readings. (CP)
