The Role of the Disabled in the Overall Picture of the Rehabilitation Process.
Whitten, Cecil J.
In this experimental program the client is involved directly from the initial interview. The intention of the program is to give the disabled a more autonomous role by sharing common successes, problems and failures in group discussions with other disabled persons. Budgeting, child care, and nutrition are included in the academic program which utilizes low level, high interest books. Emphasis is placed on personal relationships between tutors and clients. Client ages range from 16 years to adult years. Work training and job placement are an integral part of the project. The focus is on enabling handicapped persons to risk their own security and dependence in order to become more functioning members of society. (SBP)
