A Project to Determine the Employability of Epileptics. Final Report.
EPI-HAB Phoenix, Inc., AZ.
A demonstration project (1958-1961) was conducted to establish that a self-sustaining workshop for epileptics can maintain itself competitively and be a viable rehabilitative setting for the epileptic midway between one employable in private industry and one employable only in a sheltered workshop. An EPI-HAB project in Phoenix, Arizona, successfully employed 140 epileptics. Significant findings were: high equality epileptic workmanship can be achieved through proper training; proper training actually improves self-confidence and reduces seizures; entrance into private industry is most assured when initiated by epileptic. Abundant financial tables and time lost data substantiate the project's conclusions. (Author)
