Follow-Up on the Effectiveness of Tribally Operated Vocational Rehabilitation Projects. Final Report.
Lonetree, Georgia L.
A follow-up study of 15 project offices (involving 50 administrative and support staff responses) was conducted to determine the progress of the American Indian Vocational Rehabilitation projects in addressing previously identified training and technical assistance needs, as authorized by Title 1, Part D, Section 130 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973. This report describes the history of the Section 130 projects and then discusses the study methodology which involved a survey mailed to all projects and on-site visitations of five projects. Twenty-seven tables present the study's findings. They provide data, overall and by geographic region, on project director and staff responses concerning current training and technical assistance needs as well as progress toward addressing training needs identified in a 1988 study. Training and technical assistance needs included, among others: functional limitations of disabilities, medical aspects of disabilities, vocational evaluation, work adjustment, independent living skills, vocational rehabilitation legislation, job analysis, sheltered employment, program evaluation, report writing, and confidentiality. Recommendations are also provided. An appendix contains a copy of the survey form. (Contains 16 references.) (JDD)
