A Comprehensive Paradigm for the Provision of Career Development Services to a K-12 School Population Including Those with Special Needs
Bickel, Perry S.
TEACHING Exceptional Children Plus, v3 n2 Article 2 Nov 2006
A comprehensive paradigm for the provision of career development services to a K-12 school population including those with special needs is presented in an easily understood format. This service delivery "tool" is intended to help teachers and administrators both acknowledge the career development services that they are currently providing and concretely identify and strengthen areas of need. It is valuable for what it shows in addition to what it does not show, "gaps in services." The focus is on demonstrating accountability and relevancy of services which are viewed as being inseparable concepts. This constitutes a change in focus from educating for education's sake to educating for employment/career preparation. An expanded version of the typical career development format is utilized that is in turn cross referenced with different service delivery options in line with differentiated instruction methodology. A provision for ongoing student involvement in progress monitoring is included to empower and teach students to advocate for themselves.
