Summary

The author presents a rationale for incorporating a career/life adjustment curriculum into the learning disabled student's program from school entry to exit, and gives suggestions and objectives for each educational level. Suggested for kindergarten are teaching social competence and appropriate work behaviors, inviting visitors such as firemen, and stressing six objectives such as learning to differentiate between work and play. Suggested for the elementary level, to offset emphasis on academic deficit remediation, is emphasizing social skills, using six objectives such as learning to comprehend the importance of skills to jobs at home, school, and society; and making generous use of introducing to the classroom "guests" who work. Suggested for the secondary level, to improve such deficits as lack of self-concept, are three objectives such as making it possible for the learner to have work experience. Implementation of the career/life curriculum should be stressed as a priority if it has not previously been presented sequentially. (MC)
