Career Development and Employment for College Students and Graduates with Disabilities: An Annotated Bibliography. 1993 Edition.
Aune, Betty, Ed.; Baggett, David, Ed.
This annotated bibliography identifies 31 recent (1989 through 1992) articles of interest to college students with disabilities and personnel involved in postsecondary career centers and disability services offices. A preliminary section provides a review of the literature as a whole. Abstracts summarize articles' major points or studies' findings. Articles are grouped into the following categories: career development/preparation (11 articles); employment/workplace accommodations (8 articles); follow-up studies (7 articles); and policy/professional development (5 articles). Articles in the section on career development fall under three categories--career planning, career preparation, and career achievement. An underlying theme of most articles in the first section is that effective career development encourages self determination of people with disabilities. The need for flexibility in counseling approaches is stressed. Most of the articles in the section on employment/workplace accommodations discuss implementation of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). These articles cover the hiring process, reasonable accommodations, essential functions, disclosure, and resources for the employer. The follow-up studies explore how a college education affected employment outcomes, or compare successful and unsuccessful groups of adults. The articles on policy/professional development either discuss professional development of counselors or address implications of the ADA. An appendix gives relevant organizational addresses. (DB)
