Career Planning and Placement Strategies for Postsecondary Students with Disabilities.
Grinder, R. Dale; Forman, Susan Bardellini
The fact sheet is designed to help counselors, teachers, administrators, and disabled students with issues concerning career planning and placement in postsecondary academic and technical schools. The value of early counseling and the importance of encouraging healthy risk-taking are underlined. Model programs at University of California (Berkeley), Southern Illinois University, Gallaudet College (Washington, D.C.), St. Mary's Junior College (Minnesota), and Northeastern University (Massachusetts), are described in terms of innovative strategies. The second section summarizes four federal programs: state and federal vocational rehabilitation programs, Projects with Industry, The President's Committee on Employment of the Handicapped, and the selective placement program developed by the U.S. Office of Personnel Management. Section 3 describes four programs with a national focus: The National Center on Employment of the Deaf, Job Opportunities for the Blind, Training and Placement Services for persons with epilepsy, and the National Career Development Project. Seven resource persons are identified and addresses given. The final part of the fact sheet is an annotated bibliography for career seekers and career counselors. (CL)
