Proceedings of the Decatur Seminar; November 1971.
Fry, Ronald, Ed.; And Others
The purpose of the seminar was to explore and exchange ideas on the evaluation process by providing a forum for the description of seven of the more highly developed client evaluation programs serving Illinois' handicapped clients: the Decatur Evaluation Center, the Employment Training Center, Goodwill Industries of Chicago and Cook County, Jewish Employment and Vocational Service of St. Louis, the Jewish Vocational Service, the Kennedy Job Training Center, and Socialized Services, Inc. Program descriptions offer an overview, and focus on philosophy, staffing, selection of clients, intake services, methods of client evaluation, reporting, and placement. A major conclusion of the seminar is that staff, in terms of commitment, energy, creative imagination, and expertise, was the critical element in the client evaluation process. Appended materials are included with each program description, providing sample forms, reports, and tests. (MW)
