Abstract: Extends the concept of job placement to a theory of career counseling for disabled adults. The history of placement in rehabilitation is reviewed and several theories of career counseling are considered. A model of career development for disabled adults is presented that includes implications for rehabilitation counselors in its components of self-understanding, self-acceptance and acceptance of disability, career exploration, career self-concept, career selection, and career reevaluation.
