Promoting Civil Service Employment of the Deaf. Final Report.
Manning, William; Stansbury, Eunice
The purpose of this project was to investigate some of the difficulties the deaf have in obtaining employment, and to implement techniques to overcome some of these barriers, particularly in Civil Service. Different services were provided to each of five groups of clients, including training in computer operations, language skill training, counseling on the availability of psychological services, job placement through counselor referrals, and training for Post Office examinations. In each group, interpreter services were offered as an ancillary service, since some employers were more willing to hire a deaf employee if an interpreter was available for the orientation period. Three similar training programs in Baltimore, Detroit, and Washington, D.C., revealed apparent disparity in results, and a followup study was made of the three populations. (BH)
