Feasibility Study for the Physically Handicapped, 1970-1971.
Mall, Paul C.
Using data gathered from 15 local agencies, this study sought to identify the number of physically handicapped individuals who could benefit from educational experiences in existing technical and occupational programs in the city colleges of Chicago. Answers were sought to questions such as the following: (1) What are the categories of disabilities of the handicapped individuals of the metropolitan area of Chicago? (2) Which types of academic, technical and occupational training are appropriate to each category of handicapped individuals? (3) What areas and levels of employment are available for the handicapped individual and in what quantity? and (4) What are the cost factors involved in initiating and operating such programs? A major finding of this study is that the handicapped students who are receiving educational opportunities at the 4-year universities are pursuing baccalaureate degrees, and many who could benefit from technical and occupational programs are not provided the opportunity. New programs are needed to provide vocational and technical education to this group of students. (Author/JS)
