The Rehabilitation Specialist Program. A Report of a Demonstration Project for The Development of a Training Course for Housing Rehabilitation Specialists.
Massachusetts Bay Community Coll., Watertown.
A demonstration program to help local public agencies to train rehabilitation specialists is the focus of this report. The project objectives of the project were: (1) to develop a curriculum to educate and train housing rehabilitation specialists, (2) to test the curriculum in the classroom with three groups of students (n=75), and (3) to publish this curriculum and a "Handbook for Housing Rehabilitation Specialists." The six chapters provided in this report are: 1. Summary of the Project, with results and recommendations; II. Overview of the Project--origins and first plans; III. Task One: Development of the Curriculum, how the educational objectives were identified and refined into a course; IV. Task Two: Testing the Course--through feedback from three successive groups of students; V. Task Three: Writing the Handbook--ist background, intended audience, and uses; VI. Evaluative Summary--how the project appears to its staff in retrospect. Appendixes are: A. Summary of "Handbook" Chapters, and B. Organizational and Cost Guidelines. [Appendixes C (Curriculum Advisory Committee Members), D (Instructors), and E (Student Awarded Certificates) have been deleted due to their marginal reproducibility.] The four basic accomplishments of this demonstration project were: a training program for rehabilitation specialists was designed and tried out in the classroom; 75 men completed the program and are doing better rehabilitation work in their communities; the "Handbook" is available as a training resource; and other local public agencies can consider adapting these results to their own needs. [The "Handbook" is published separately as a Technical Appendix.] (DB)
