Savino, Michael T.; Belchick, Gerald D.
Reported is the progress of a vocational rehabilitation program for severely disabled students at the University of California, Berkeley. The Cowell Hospital Project provides housing and special assistance for quadriplegics with an especially favorable academic prognosis. The report summarizes the project's funding, type of clients, admission procedures, assistance provided to handle the activities of daily living, medical management, rehabilitation counseling services, costs, and future. It is noted that the academic and vocational achievement of clients is above that of the average university student and/or rehabilitation client. Appended information includes a table of client characteristics, case cost estimates, reprints of news articles on the project, the Cowell Residence Program admission procedure and a student questionnaire, evaluative comments and recommendations by project participants, and brief case summaries of the 18 clients currently served by the project.
