COOPERATIVE PROGRAM FOR REHABILITATION OF THE DISABLED INDIAN. NAVAJO REHABILITATION PROJECT. FINAL REPORT.
HENDERSON, NORMAN B.; AND OTHERS
THIS PROJECT (1) DEVELOPED AND EVALUATED REHABILITATION TECHNIQUES AND PROCEDURES, (2) DEMONSTRATED PROCEDURES FOR COORDINATING AND INVOLVING AGENCIES, AND (3) RESEARCHED DATA IN VOCATIONALLY REHABILITATING DISABLED NAVAJOS. OF 258 DISABLED NAVAJOS, 118 COMPLETED ENOUGH OF THE PROGRAM TO BE INCLUDED IN THE EVALUATION. THEY WERE HOUSED AND DINED ON THE NORTHERN ARIZONA UNIVERSITY CAMPUS. SOCIAL AND PLACEMENT SERVICES WERE PROVIDED. ENGLISH AS A SECOND LANGUAGE AND A TRADITIONAL CULTURE DIFFERING FROM WESTERN EUROPEAN LIMITED THE VALIDITY OF THE PSYCHOLOGICAL TESTS GIVEN. THE PROJECT WAS GENERALLY EFFECTIVE. OF THE 118 EVALUATED CLIENTS, 92 WERE PLACED IN TRAINING OR ON JOBS. IF DISABLED NAVAJOS ARE TO BE RECRUITED FOR REHABILITATION AND REMAIN IN THE PROGRAM, MUCH INDIVIDUAL CONTACT IS NEEDED WITH THE PROSPECTIVE CLIENT, HIS FAMILY, AND REFERRAL SOURCES. RECOMMENDATIONS FOR FUTURE CROSS-CULTURAL DEMONSTRATION PROJECTS ARE INCLUDED. (SK)
