The vocational counseling and training process described in this manual has been used successfully with disabled students at Vista College. As prefatory material notes the Vista College model is exceptional in that it begins with conditional job offers from a specific private employer and then works backward to establish the necessary training standards, admission requirements, assessment activities, and recruitment procedures; and that it focuses on developing short-term, intensive training activities designed specifically for disabled students. Chapter I introduces Vista College's disabled student population; program components, results, and operational structure; and program development and administration. Chapter II explains the components of the business-education-labor partnership, focusing on the conditional job offers, the college and its relationship with the private sector, and the role of unions. Chapter III considers training and placement strategies, providing information on programs such as roofer's pre-apprenticeship, custodial and postal services, and intercept operator. Chapter IV reviews initial student contacts and the recruitment, intake, and referral processes; chapter V describes the program's assessment activities. Concluding chapters consider disability benefits and training, developmental activities, and supportive services such as employer education, student support, and post-placement services. (LAL)
