Technical Consultant Services to Innovate More Adequate Rehabilitation Services to Clients with Catastrophic Disabilities. Rehabilitation Research Report. Final Survey, August 11, 1966 to June 30, 1969.
Garris, A. G.; Koonce, K. D.
A special project which provided technical consultation and training for counselors specializing in rehabilitation of the severely disabled is described. A systems approach, utilizing mechanical assistive devices and other mechanical aids and adaptive techniques, enabled many of these clients to become more self-reliant and independent. Included in the report are: (1) a discussion and samples of the instructional aids which teach the counselors to gather and use information available from the client during counseling; and (2) 6 self-instructional articles which concern specific counseling techniques. These latter are reproduced in the appendix. A series of 8 brief case examples provide clarification of the program's approach. (TL)
