Developing Programs for the Rural Handicapped.
Niederfrank, E. J.
Suggestions for aiding State and local organizations in developing programs for aiding the handicapped in rural areas are presented. It is pointed out that the greatest problem of handicapped people is community apathy in regard to helping them. The key public resource in every State is the State vocational rehabilitation agency. The first action on the State level should come from the Governor's Committee on Employment of the Handicapped and should consist of forming a State Rural Areas Committee for the Handicapped. On a local basis, the first step is to designate a local organization to give administrative leadership to developing work with the handicapped locally. Work with the handicapped in rural areas is a three-fold, interrelated responsibility. It involves establishing and maintaining organization, determining the facts and defining objectives, and planning and carrying out action projects. (CK)
