Sheltered Employment of the Disabled: An International Survey.
Glaser, William A.
Information on an international survey on policies and practices in sheltered employment was conducted by questionnaires in English and Spanish in 65 countries, and by interviews in India and the United States. For convenience this report retained the traditional words "sheltered workshop," even though leaders in some countries are beginning to abandon the phrase because of its association with terminal employment. Information is reported from the 37 responding countries, where 2,800 workshops are employing 180,000 people. These data indicate that the sheltered workshop is a significant factor in economic, social, and rehabilitation planning. Extensive tables and charts contain information on the size and composition of programs, goals of sheltered employment, ownership and control, production and sales, management and labor. (CH)
