Youth Employment--Training Career Advisement with the Disabled.
Mesa Community Coll., AZ.
This resource book is one of three documents developed in a community college project to meet the career and vocational needs of disadvantaged handicapped youth (mainly the learning disabled, the educable mentally handicapped, and the emotionally handicapped) by assisting them to gain and retain full-time, non-subsidized employment. The resource book is the outgrowth of training workshops for high school and community college counselors who work with the disabled. It contains a list of handicaps selected as representative of common conditions and impairments of persons in the labor force. Each medical condition is presented, the symptoms and course of the disease are summarized, and each condition is correlated to the potential work-related restrictions which could result. Also illustrated is a format for analysis of job content in the areas of job duties, physical demands, working conditions, and general characteristics. Contents also include a list of tests and evaluation instruments for use in assessing handicapped individuals' interests, I.Q., personality, achievement, perception, and vocational aptitudes; and a directory of job, vocational, and community resources. A sample Department of Economic Security (D.E.S.) Job Service Form-511 is appended. (KC)
