Serving the Rural County.
Phelps, William R.
The principal objective of this project was to demonstrate a new approach to the delivery of vocational rehabilitation services in rural counties. A three-year expansion project was conducted in a typical rural county of West Virginia, Webster County. The office was staffed with a counselor, a case aide worker, and a clerical worker, and the office provided vehicular transportation for client services. Emphasis was placed on the delivery of services through interagency cooperation and innovative features, including the use of counselor aide, a plan for transporting clients for services, approaches to increase production, and stressing prompt and thorough attention to referrals. Over the three-year project period, the project served 510 clients and rehabilitated 163 clients into substantial, gainful occupations. (NTIS)
