An Introduction to Career Education at the Elementary Level: With Parent, School and Community Involvement.
Ellington, Carol; Winkoff, Leslie
Career education, viewed as a comprehensive educational program focusing on skill development in vocational, leisure, and personal tasks, should begin with handicapped students at the elementary level. Elements of such a program include awareness of self, career, economics, decision making skills, and employability skills. Career education should begin with a cooperative home/school effort, in which the schools provide career guidance and counseling. Parents may avail themselves of resources outside the school to aid in their child's career development. (CL)
