Wehmeyer, Michael L.
Career Development for Exceptional Individuals, v16 n2 p135-46 Fall 1993
Seventy-eight adolescents were administered the Career Decision Diagnostic Assessment instrument. Students with mental retardation or learning disabilities scored more poorly than nondisabled students on decision anxiety, tendency to avoid decision making, authority orientation, and luck and fate orientation. The study concluded that students' lack of self-determination is one contributor to poor employment outcomes. (JDD)
