Handbook of Selective Placement of Persons with Physical and Mental Handicaps in Federal Civil Service Employment.
Office of Personnel Management, Washington, DC.
This handbook for the selective placement of persons with physical and mental handicaps in federal civil service employment consists of eleven sections. Topics covered in section 1 include affirmative action, nondiscrimination, reasonable accomodation, definition of the term handicapped, acceptable terminology, and program implementation. Section 2 examines the role of the agency coordinator in such areas as eliminating attitudinal and procedural barriers, recruiting handicapped applicants, modifying jobs and work sites, unpaid experience and special employment programs, employee orientation and follow-up, and career development. Section 3 contains similar material on the role of the rehabilitation counselor. Architectural and transportation barriers and special provisions for handicapped individuals (special testing, temporary trial appointments, excepted appointments, and certification procedures) are described in sections 4 and 5. The next five sections examine blindness and visual impairment, deafness and hearing impairment, mental illness, mental retardation, and mobility and other physical handicaps. The needs, job possibilities, and placement of individuals with these disabilities are outlined. Preference and counselors, special employment programs, and organizations and services are discussed in the final section on disabled veterans. Lists of references and selected readings are provided.
