Replicating Jobs in Business and Industry for Persons with Disabilities. Volume One.
Tindall, Lloyd W.; And Others
Intended for teachers, counselors, job placement specialists, employers, and disabled persons, this publication provides information about jobs performed in business and industry by persons with disabilities. Each of the 71 job descriptions presented specifies the type of job, disability of the person performing the job, company information, job requirements, job information (such as wages, work schedule, training, etc.), significant duties, and special considerations (such as limitations, hiring incentives, and job accommodations). Information on each job description was provided by employers, disabled employees, and job placement specialists. Job titles and disabilities are cross referenced. Positions range from accountants, administrators, and assistants to animal and horticultural workers, messengers, and production operators. Disabilities of workers in these jobs include: cerebral palsy, hearing impairment, visual impairment, emotional disturbance, paralysis, mental retardation, learning disability, and paraplegia. An additional section presents an effective strategy for identifying jobs for the disabled and getting disabled persons placed in jobs. Information on relevant resources (projects, organizations, training programs and publications) is also provided. The job replication form used to obtain information for the job descriptions is appended and readers are encouraged to use it to contribute additional job descriptions to this catalog. (CB)
