This paper presents a chronology of legislative mandates for vocational rehabilitation, discusses their impact on occupational therapy, and describes relationships between special educators and vocational agencies. The Career Training Workshop, a prevocational program developed and used successfully by a North Carolina school district, is described here as an example of one effort to prepare students with disabilities for employment.
