The Vocational Rehabilitation of Deaf People.
Quigley, Stephen P., Ed.
The purpose of the workshop on rehabilitation casework standards for the deaf was to provide an opportunity for specialized counselors to discuss common problems and possible solutions. A major outcome of the workshop was the establishment of a professional association, Professional Rehabilitation Workers with the Adult Deaf. The workshop was organized around six topics: (1) case finding and referral, (2) preliminary case survey, (3) case study, (4) vocational rehabilitation diagnosis, (5) planning goals and services, training and higher education, and (6) provision of services and counseling. Papers presented on each of these topics, with commentaries and discussion summaries, are included in the report. Most of the workshop participants were rehabilitation counselors who specialized in work with deaf clients, and most of the State vocational rehabilitation agencies were represented. Appended are the bylaws of the professional association, counselor training programs, and a listing of workshop participants. The document is a reissue of the original report, as it continues to be in heavy demand as the main basic guide for effective vocational rehabilitation services to one of the most severly handicapped groups. The latest bylaws were substituted for the original and the demographic statistics brought up-to-date. (MF)
