Career Development and Adults with Moderate to Severe Mental Retardation.
Wadsworth, John; Cocco, Karen
Lifelong career development activities may assist persons with more severe forms of mental retardation in achieving occupational tenure. Occupational tenure is important if individuals are to move away from a succession of entry-level employment. Adaptive career development strategies and techniques may prevent job dissatisfaction and poor performance. This paper reviews strategies to create career growth within existing supported educational and work settings. (GCP)
