Career Development and Employment for College Students and Graduates with Disabilities: An Annotated Bibliography.
Aune, Elizabeth; And Others
This bibliography offers abstracts of 41 publications and journal articles (published from 1988 through 1991) addressing career development, employment issues, and trends for college students and graduates with disabilities. A review of the literature in each of these areas identifies such themes as: the need for individualized career development; the effects of environmental attributes in limiting the early social and vocational experiences of people with disabilities; outcomes and predictors of success; employment concerns of people with disabilities; employers' and rehabilitation professionals' attitudes and practices; and guidelines for campus career planning and placement professionals. The review stresses that the attitudes of nondisabled people are more disabling for individuals with disabilities than the disability itself. The review suggests that a new model of career development may be needed to address the needs of this population and that research is needed which both looks at disabilities as a whole and identifies concerns related to specific disabilities.
