Hoy, Cheri A.; Gregg, K. Noel
This manual, the final document in a series, is intended to help adult education teachers help learning disabled (LD) students function in the world of work. The need for adults to develop personal-social and daily living skills along with the ability to adjust to the pluralistic nature of society is stressed. An approach to identifying strengths and weaknesses in LD adults is described and implications for vocation selection and job performance are noted. Job search strategies are outlined, including finding a position availability announcement, making an application, interviewing, and surviving on the job. Relevant federal agencies and general non-federal resources are listed along with information on materials available from five commercial publishers. (CL)
