Four strategies that advisors and counselors can use in working with disabled students are described: (1) encouraging students to assess interest, aptitude, and achievement; (2) providing non-restrictive career counseling; (3)encouraging students to base decision-making about postsecondary education on a variety of criteria, including training available, cost, and auxiliary aids and accessibility; and (4) assuring access to the counseling environment. Selected resources are described which may help implement the strategies. (NB)
