Guide for Supporting Career Development for Students with Learning Disabilities

workforceThe National Collaborative on Workforce and Disability for Youth (NCWD/Y) has released a new guide on supporting career development for students with learning disabilities. Charting the Course: Supporting the Career Development of Youth with Learning Disabilities is intended to help practitioners, administrators and policymakers in secondary and postsecondary education programs, transition programs, One-Stop Career Centers, youth employment programs and community rehabilitation programs to improve services and outcomes for youth, ages 14 to 25, with diagnosed and undiagnosed learning disabilities. The Guide includes numerous quick reference charts, tables and tools for counselors, career advisors and other professionals who work directly with youth. In-depth information is provided on a variety of topics, including the types and impact of learning disabilities, needed supports and research-based interventions. The Guide is intended to increase awareness of the fact that the workforce development system serves many youth who have learning disabilities that may never have been identified and many others who may know t hey have a learning disability but choose not to disclose it. Although focusing primarily on youth with learning disabilities, many of the strategies and approaches advocated in the Guide, which are premised on universal design, may be of practical use for other youth.
