This monograph, a product of a symposium that examined innovative research and practices in evaluation, adjustment training, and employment services for hearing impaired persons addresses the assessment phase of the vocational rehabilitation process.

Austin); "Psychological Assessment of the Verbal Functioning of Postsecondary Program Applicants--Enhancing Predictive Validity" (R. Falberg); "Commercial Vocational Evaluation Systems and Deaf Persons" (S. Sligar); "Vocational Evaluation of Severely Disabled Hearing-Impaired Rehabilitation Clients" (F. Cheung); "Vocational Evaluation in Technical-Vocational Education" (D. Buchkoski); and "Career Assessment and Advisement of the Technical College Student" (J. DeCaro, A. Areson). A list of participants is included. (JW)
