Comprehensive Statewide Planning for Vocational Rehabilitation Services. Final Report, Volume I.
Rehabilitation Services Administration (DHEW), Washington, DC.
A commission was established in Virginia in February 1967 to determine the vocational rehabilitation requirements up to 1975 and to develop a statewide plan to meet these needs. A variety of sources were utilized such as surveys, testimony of experts, past caseload experience, and population projections. This information was used to estimate future needs and an evaluation was made of current programs and resources. The recommendations were formulated in a plan which set up priorities in five categories which were action, immediate, soon, interim, and long-range. The time schedules for these programs varied from action projects which were in progress to long range which had a completion data of from 4 to 7 years. Volume II which provides information about the planning organization and statistical data on the rehabilitation population and programs is available as VT 010 283. (BC)
