Caseload Feasibility in An Expanded Vocational Rehabilitation Program.
Hammond, Clarence D.; And Others
Rehabilitation caseload feasibility in an expanded vocational rehabilitation program was the focus of this study. The general purpose was to investigate the possibility of expanding services to include a wider range of vocationally handicapped persons without lowering the feasibility level of the agency caseload. Two groups of clients received services: (1) Physically-and mentally-handicapped clients, and (2) culturally-handicapped clients. 85 of these clients who had completed the program's Test Battery were selected at random for comparison with 85 medically-handicapped clients from a traditional Agency. Scales were developed to assess rehabilitation caseload feasibility. It was concluded that: (1) instruments to measure rehabilitation feasibility level can be constructed, (2) extending rehabilitation services to a larger proportion of the handicapped in a rural community does not decrease caseload feasibility, and (3) the vocationally handicapped clients have a higher level of case feasibility than traditional clients. The study implied that many handicapped persons have not been exposed to rehabilitation services but should be. There is a need to include subjects representing a more heterogeneous population in future research. (Author/EK)
