Stressing the integration of work skills and behaviors into everyday activities at home, at school, and in the community, this comprehensive manual outlines how important capabilities can be developed through meaningful learning experiences at different ages. Experts in their subject areas focus on suggestions for developing abilities leading to career and life satisfaction for preschoolers, elementary school students, and middle school students. In addition, contributors offer insights on the needs of children from a family, rural, urban, or multicultural perspective, as well as on other needs of youngsters with multiple disabilities. A career exploration program for visually impaired students in the middle school and beyond is included to encourage students to go into their communities to learn about the many career options available to them.
