Kaplan, Linda; And Others
This four-part report describes Directions for Success, a school-college collaborative project between Middlesex Community College and 15 area school districts designed to provide learning disabled students and their parents with career assessment services and access to information which will enable them to make workable, long-range career plans. First, the 1985-86 annual report of the project is presented, including an introduction summarizing its second-year activities, accomplishments, and problems; changes proposed for 1986-87; and recommendations and suggestions. The next section provides a Career Assessment Model and a packet of career assessment materials for the learning disabled student. This packet includes a designated guidance counselor interview form, a special needs teacher intake form, a special needs teacher interview form, a student interview intake form, career assessment vocabulary lists, student self-assessment worksheets, career assessment resources, and a sample report form. The next section presents findings from a study conducted to gather midyear feedback from guidance counselors and special education staff from the 15 participating high schools. The final section summarizes major findings from a follow-up study of 51 1984-85 participants to determine their current activities and whether the career assessment report had helped them. (LAL)
