REAP. Rehabilitation Education Advancement and Placement (A Program in Adult Basic Education). Final Project Report. June 1969.
Pittsburgh Univ., PA. Research and Training Center in Vocational Rehabilitation.
The Rehabilitation Education Advancement and Placement (REAP) program, a pilot demonstration project sponsored by the Research and Training Center at the University of Pittsburgh and the Pennsylvania Rehabilitation Center (PRC), operated for 30 weeks and provided Adult Basic Education Training for rehabilitation clients. The ultimate goal of the program was that participants achieve more effective living in their social, civic, economic, and personal life. Clients were referred to REAP from PRC by instructors; counselors interviewed and tested clients with the California Achievement Test (used to determine eligibility for the program), the Social Vocabulary Index Test, and the Attitudes Inventory for Youth. Classes, based on participant interest, included consumer mathematics, reading improvement, communications, government, psychology, sex education, and family living. The Curriculum Guide to Adult Basic Education was eventually used as a basis for the REAP curriculum. Clients generally felt that they profited from the program; many felt a significant change in their feeling of social approval and self acceptance. As a whole, those clients who attended REAP regularly demonstrated more positive improvement in their vocational program at PRC. (se)
