Career Development for Persons with Learning Disabilities. Postsecondary Intervention Model for Learning Disabilities. Study Manual #5.
Egly, Nancy J.; And Others
The manual presents an overview of the career development process for college students with language learning disabilities (LD). A systematic problem solving process is advocated beginning with job selection and preparation and continuing through retirement. Such a process can help the LD adult to identify personal strengths and weaknesses, investigate job opportunities, match personal strengths with job demands, select appropriate preparation programs, and pursue progressive career achievement. Suggestions are for employment interviews and understanding one's rights regarding employment discrimination. Three appendixes include information on a pre-employment inquiry quiz and campus and off-campus resources for career-life planning. (CL)
