Employers' Perceptions of Transition Programming for Students with Emotional Disturbances
Walsh, Maureen P.
Journal of Employment Counseling, v47 n3 p123-133 Sep 2010
This qualitative study compiled input from employers (N = 7) participating in a program geared to prepare high school students with emotional disturbances for post-high-school employment situations. Data were collected through open-ended interviews related to 4 research questions and analyzed through thematic and comparative analysis. Results showed a link between the skills employers desired from their employees and skills needed for students with emotional disturbances to be successful. Employers' recommendations included measures to address prior to program implementation and ways to create strong support systems for students with disabilities. (Contains 2 tables.)
