Career Guidance for Learning-Disabled Youth
Chen, Charles P.; Chan, Janice
International Journal for Educational and Vocational Guidance, v14 n3 p275-291 Oct 2014
Learning disabilities (LDs) describe a number of disorders that affect the way information is acquired, retained, organized, and understood. This article aims to address the critical issue of improving the career well-being of LD youth. It first examines several critical issues that affect LD high school students/youth in their career development. Then, some major career development and counselling theories are integrated into conceptualizing and analyzing the career issues and needs of this target group. Following these key theoretical insights, some career guidance and counselling intervention strategies are considered to help and enhance the vocational well-being of this target population.
