The executive summary of a three-volume study of the role of sheltered workshops in the rehabilitation of the severely handicapped includes a brief description of the research that was undertaken in the project and a summary of the study's findings. Site visits to 400 sheltered workshops throughout the country formed the basis for the study. The study's eight sections discuss the following subjects: (1) the project's origins and research approach; (2) the state of the art and the workshop universe; (3) the clientele of the workshops and the manner in which they became clients; (4) programs and services offered by sheltered workshops; (5) workshop staffs; (6) workshop finances and wage payments; (7) workshops' impact on their clients; and (8) interesting concepts utilized in foreign and innovative domestic projects related to workshops. The summary concludes with specific recommendations based on the strengths and weaknesses determined from the overall assessment. (Author/JR)
