Comprehensive Statewide Planning for Vocational Rehabilitation Services, Connecticut. Final Report, Volume I.
Connecticut State Dept. of Education, Hartford. Div. of Vocational Rehabilitation.
The Statewide Planning Project for Vocational Rehabilitation Services was established by the Governor of the State of Connecticut to develop a master plan for vocational rehabilitation services. The entire state was considered and the project included citizens, public and private agencies, and representatives from professional groups. Five regional committees and many subcommittees met several times to discuss the problems of their respective localities. During the last year, five areas were studied: (1) Interagency Cooperation, (2) Prevalence of Disabilities, (3) Job Market and Manpower, (4) Research, and (5) Legislation. Specific recommendations include: (1) In planning for the immediate future, present estimates of disability should be used, (2) Systematic research must be carried out, (3) The number of counselors in the state mental hospitals should be increased, and (4) A working agreement should be made between the Department of Mental Health and the Division of Vocational Rehabilitation.
