Career Education Programs for the Handicapped. Final Report 1983-1984.
Brookdale Community Coll., Lincroft, NJ.
A project was designed to create a program with adapted materials and techniques and the necessary support staff to meet the problems inherent in career education for handicapped students. Handicapped students who generally cannot secure employment because of inappropriate job goals were helped by Brookdale Community College's Career Services for the Handicapped through the provision of such services as an advisory board, 80 workshops that provided career group experiences for handicapped individuals, individual counseling, a career fair for the physically handicapped, a speaker's bureau comprised of role models, on-site visits to employers, job placement programs, and job shadowing. Still other services included volunteer support services, publicity, telephone services for the deaf, social events, a barrier-free Mini-Career Information Center, cooperation with other agencies, establishment of a college student activities organization to promote student involvement, and formation of a support group of parents. Continued attention was recommended for the areas of transportation, job placement, and job development. (Appendixes, amounting to approximately one-half of the report, include a bibliography, census information, copies of the newsletter, career fair report, participant evaluations of workshops, and career fair invitation and program.)
