Employment of the Learning Disabled: An Annotated Bibliography of Resource Materials for Education and Training.
Hedges, Donna M., Comp.; And Others
This selective list of resource materials focuses on education and training for employment of the learning disabled, to be used as a basis for modifying and developing attitudes, programs, materials, and resource libraries. It aims to assist the learning disabled in the transition from school to work, assist employers and employment agencies in the creation of training programs, and provide instructors and counselors with an up-to-date listing of professional tools. Almost 300 items are included, in the following formats: model projects, field studies, videotapes, books, journals, theses, directories, guides, articles, games, and microforms. The items are organized into four sections: a general section, and sections for employers, adults with learning disabilities, and instructors. Each record includes bibliographic information, a brief abstract, and subject headings, as well as information about the item's location at one or more of 25 libraries and resource centers, primarily in British Columbia, Canada. Access to records is facilitated by an index of personal and corporate names, a subject index, and a title index. (JDD)
