An Experiential Learning Model for Students with Disabilities: Internships and Career Development.
California Univ., Berkeley.
The Academic Internship Program for Handicapped Students at the University of California, Riverside, focuses on the multiple career development problems faced by college students with physical disabilities. The problems these students face include a narrow range of career exposure, lack of work experience, prejudice and stereotyping by employers, and lack of interest in their career development by faculty members. The project addresses these problems by providing students with part time paid and volunteer internships, educating local employers concerning their support of the internship program, and encouraging more active involvement of faculty in the career development of these students. The booklet includes sections on the following: faculty involvement, project management and staffing, internship development, placement of interns, resolution of student transportation problems, career development, program relationship to support services and allied professionals, and future plans.
