Career Counseling and Job Placement of Disabled Students at Two-Year Colleges: A Guide.
Katz, David; And Others
This six-part guide, drawing upon recent research and development activities at the City University of New York's Center for Advanced Study in Education, presents information on the career development and placement of handicapped students for use by all specialists within a community college student personnel office. After introductory material describing the use of the guide for in-service training, Chapter I discusses personal and vocational counseling services for disabled students, describes vocational assessment and testing systems, and provides a 15-part guide to resources that can be used in the counseling process. Chapter II enumerates guidelines for the job placement of disabled students and describes workshop activities designed to involve area employers. Chapters III and IV discuss common stereotypes which hinder the upward mobility of handicapped employees and present recommendations for the accommodation of job specifications and work tasks to meet the special needs of disabled workers. Chapter V describes simulation exercises for teaching job-seeking skills, and Chapter VI describes methods that can be used in helping handicapped students prepare for job interviews. The appendix includes case studies and an annotated bibliography. (JP)
