Monahan, Michael P.

Low employment and underemployment rates for students with disabilities have drawn national attention resulting in federal legislation. The research literature indicates a strong relationship between job success and interpersonal factors, especially for employees with disabilities. This study investigated social skills and problem behaviors of general and special education career and technical education students using the Social Skills Rating System instrument. Findings indicated that social skills and problem behaviors were not addressed in the individual transition plans, a statistically significant difference was found between general and special education students on empathy, and employers rated special education employees higher on cooperation.
