Abstract

In this article, a motion video CD-ROM program designed to assist youth with severe disabilities in the selection of job preferences is described. With help from a facilitator such as a special education teacher or rehabilitation counselor, a youth works at a computer terminal to select preferred work conditions and specific jobs. This information may be used for transition planning. First, traditional vocational interest inventories for individuals with disabilities and video and CD-ROM career exploration programs for youth with typical characteristics are presented. Second, development and evaluation of the video CD-ROM program for youth with severe disabilities is described.
