Of significant importance for the Russian economic system is the generalization and application of best practices in the area of vocational guidance and employment of young people with special educational needs. In Russia, a special attention is being paid to the development and creation of a vocational guidance system as one of the priorities in the sphere of training students with special educational needs. Despite the fact that in recent years much has been accomplished in this area, yet there remain a number of both conceptual and practical problems. The authors of this study have conducted a critical analysis regarding the main aspects of the problems related to vocational guidance for persons with disabilities and regarding the current trends in the creation of a professional self-determination system for persons with disabilities. The authors have also defined prospects of the concept of a vocational guidance system for school children/students with special educational needs, as well as examined existing strategies for the vocational guidance of learners with special educational needs.
