The Rehabilitation of Hispanics with Disabilities:Sociocultural Constraints
Identifies 11 sociocultural problems that work against the job placement specialist as an attempt is made to place Hispanic persons with disabilities. These problems are (1) lack of culturally sensitive career development theories, (2) issues of ethnic density, (3) effects of "tokenism," (4) effects of social problems, (5) work disincentives, (6) learning without earning, (7) lack of technological skills, (8) low placement expectations, (9) job placement discrimination, (10) problems with standardized tests, and (11) limitation of job placement of private employers. It is argued that these problems are embedded in the cultural and social practices of the dominant society.
