Moving Disabled People into the Workforce.
Markowicz, Arlene, Ed.; And Others
NAB Clearinghouse Quarterly, v1 n4 Win 1985
This issue focuses on helping disabled individuals to find and keep jobs. An overview discusses the corporate response to employment of the disabled, partnerships between industry and rehabilitation, serving disabled persons under the Job Training Partnership Act, and educating students with disabilities. Eleven "Bulletins" offer descriptions of programs to provide job development, counseling, job placement, job training, and retraining for disabled individuals. Each bulletin contains these types of information: operators, summary, results, time span, funding, outline of activities, followup, progress, problems, hints for success, products/publications, and contact. Almost 30 references in the annotated bibliography provide additional sources of information on creating private sector placement opportunities for the disabled. Materials describe marketing strategies, working programs, funding sources, technological aids, and linkage strategies. A review of two books also focuses on marketing. The final section with background materials offers detailed information on the provisions for serving handicapped individuals under the Vocational Education Act and a "WorkAmerica" reprint. (YLB)
