Career Attitudes of the Learning Disabled Adolescent: Research Suggestions and Practices.
Kendall, William S.
The study investigated the extent to which four groups (N=50 in each group) of learning disabled (LD) adolescents differed on career attitudes as related to making a sound career decision. Ss included 50 LD students enrolled in regular secondary classes, 50 LD students enrolled in secondary LD classes, 50 LD students enrolled in secondary vocational training classes, and 50 LD students enrolled in regular secondary classes and receiving additional resource center support beyond that ordinarily provided in regular classes. The attitude scale of the Career Maturity Inventory was used to determine career attitudes. Results suggested that LD adolescents in regular classes were superior to the other groups studied in career attitudes. An additional finding was that significant differences in career attitudes exist in the four LD groups. (Author/SB)
