FACTORS AFFECTING COLLABORATION BETWEEN SCHOOL AND VOCATIONAL REHABILITATION PROGRAMS FOR THE MENTALLY RETARDED.
GOTTWALD, HENRY L.
THE COOPERATIVE EFFORT BETWEEN SECONDARY SCHOOLS WITH PROGRAMS FOR THE MENTALLY RETARDED (MR) AND THE REGIONAL OFFICES OF THE DIVISION OF VOCATIONAL REHABILITATION (DVR) WAS REPORTED. QUESTIONNAIRES WERE MAILED TO DISTRICT SUPERINTENDENTS, TEACHERS OF THE MR'S, REGIONAL OFFICES OF DVR, AND COUNSELORS. A TOTAL OF 507 WERE MAILED AND 86.8 PERCENT RESPONDED. ANALYSIS OF DATA WAS CONDUCTED UNDER THREE MAJOR GROUPINGS--(1) SCHOOL DISTRICTS WITH SECONDARY PROGRAMS FOR THE MR, (2) TEACHERS FOR THE MR FUNCTIONING IN THESE PROGRAMS, AND (3) VOCATIONAL REHABILITATION COUNSELORS. THE FINDINGS INDICATED THAT ONLY 30 PERCENT OF THE RESPONDING DISTRICTS HAD MADE REFERRALS TO DVR WITHIN THE YEAR. TEACHERS WERE FOUND TO HAVE LITTLE EXPOSURE TO THE SERVICES OF DVR, ALTHOUGH COUNSELORS AGREED THAT DVR SHOULD SERVE THE MENTALLY RETARDED. IT WAS SUGGESTED THAT MORE INFORMATION ABOUT THE MENTALLY RETARDED AND THEIR SCHOOL PROGRAMS SHOULD BE INCLUDED IN THE PROFESSIONAL TRAINING OF REHABILITATION COUNSELORS. (RS)
