A National Effort for the Physically Handicapped.
President's Task Force on the Physically Handicapped, Washington, DC.
The mission of this Task Force was to review what the public and private sectors are now doing for physically handicapped Americans and to recommend what might be done to improve services and programs. Specifically, the Task Force was to provide an overview of problems faced by handicapped people in order to determine how best to assist them in achieving maximum independence, security, and dignity. To accomplish this mission the Task Force was to: (1) consider the effectiveness of existing programs, (2) recommend methods for improving the quality of services and the coordination of these programs, (3) propose ways for increasing community awareness and action in the interest of the handicapped, and (4) develop recommendations for legislation or executive governmental action, and suggest how private and voluntary groups could pursue more effectively their efforts to aid the handicapped. The findings and recommendations of this Task Force are presented in this document. (Author/BH)
