Statewide Planning for Vocational Rehabilitation Workshops and Facilities, Connecticut. Final Report.
Connecticut State Dept. of Education, Hartford. Div. of Vocational Rehabilitation.
This study focuses on the nature of rehabilitation facilities, the need for an expansion of those already in existence, and a possible increase in number so that the state can serve all of its handicapped persons by 1975. The general objective was to develop a statewide plan for workshops and rehabilitation facilities. Specific objectives were to identify and classify the existing facilities, improve the quality of services rendered, identify barriers to the proper utilization of workshops and facilities, and assure more effective use of federal and state funds. It was recommended that broader types of services be provided, that seven additional facilities with emphasis on vocational training services be established, and that general hospitals with small rehabilitation units should seek federal funds for expansion.
