Coordination of Workshops for the Mentally Retarded in a Metropolitan and Suburban Area.
Shushan, Robert D.
A demonstration project was conducted to determine the programmatic, economic, and administrative advantages of a coordinated system of sheltered workshops strategically located in a metropolitan and suburban area which placed 51 (15 percent) out of 330 trainees. Thirty-eight were placed in either competitive or on-the-job training programs. Nine were placed in sheltered workshops, and four in special trade schools. At the close of the project, a survey was made of the number of persons who had maintained their jobs, returned to production and rehabilitation (PAR) workshops, or had gone to the care and supervision of their families. The project included three workshops. (Author)
