Domeck, Anne, Ed.; Konar, Art, Ed.
This resource guide, which was developed during the Lifelong Career Development (LCD) Project, provides information and resources of interest to handicapped people, their families, professionals, and others concerned with disability-related issues. (Designed for implementation at the community college level, the LCD model provides a competency-based approach to meeting the career development needs of disabled persons and provides for a greater effort at networking or linking together services.) The guide is organized into five parts which are further subdivided into 35 chapters. Dealt with in the five parts are the following topics: general information on disabilities (career development, medical aspects, myths, attitudes, and instructional and counseling techniques); daily living skills; personal/social skills; vocational/occupational resources; and related resources (parents/family, advocacy, legislation, program funding, national organizations and resources, and bibliographies). In addition to containing general information on disabilities, the guide provides specific information on different disability groups, including handicapped general, cerebral palsy, epilepsy, hearing impairment, mental retardation, orthopedic handicaps, and visual impairment.
