Enhancing Vocational Opportunities for Handicapped Youth at Two-Year Colleges through In-Service Training.
Flugman, Bert; And Others
The report describes a project designed to enhance the career development opportunities and employment potential of college students with disabilities. The project featured trained career/vocational job placement teams who were in direct contact with employer representatives from industry. Four conferences were held in 1983 and were attended by personnel from 2- and 4-year colleges. Proceedings of each conference compose the bulk of the document. Each of the conferences addressed a single major issue (sample subtopics in parentheses): assessment (assessing vocational interests and abilities, interpersonal competencies); accommodation and accessibility (enriching the information environment through computers, modifying the attitudinal climate of the college); development of a work history (internship programs, career development programs, a model independent living project); and job development and job placement (state of the art, new directions in research and practice, handicapped employment job banks). Remarks and comments by industry spokespersons for each of the conferences are also presented. (CL)
