Vocational Technology for Cerebral Palsied Individuals Project. End-of-Project Report, 1978-1981. Volume I.
Darnell, Richard E.; And Others
A three-year project involving 27 participants was conducted to develop and apply a model vocational rehabilitation service program for cerebral palsied individuals; the project included assessment, work adjustment training, and placement. Included in the project were the following activities: (1) demonstrating a service delivery model of vocational assessment, work adjustment training, and placement for individuals moderately and severely disabled with cerebral palsy; (2) developing and continuing interagency cooperation among rehabilitation agencies, social service agencies, and schools; (3) identifying services essential to vocational adjustment of project clients; (4) exploring the needs of project clients in the areas of job development, post-employment services, and other services designed to enhance the independent functioning of the client in the community; (5) disseminating the Vocational Technology Project's model of task analysis, assessment, work adjustment training, placement, and follow-up of adolescent and adult clients with cerebral palsy; (6) exploring potentials for project refunding or spin-off; and (7) generating and disseminating a final project report. Inasmuch as the project was deemed successful, suggestions were offered to rehabilitation professionals interested in future replication of the program.
