Description of Career Education
Career education concentrates on the development of knowledge, refinement of innate abilities, and promotion of skills needed for success in employment and other life roles. Children with visual impairments, as much or even more than their sighted peers, rely on these skills to determine life and career paths. This chapter talks about career awareness and exploration and how to prepare students by cultivating the crucial skills they need to be successful in the workforce. Competency checklists and learning activities are provided at the end of the chapter.
