The Development of Individualized Supportive Services for Physically and Sensorially Limited Adults at a Post-Secondary Area Vocational School. Final Report. January 1975-June 1977.
Kelley, Catherine H.
A project was conducted to develop and implement a coordinated program of supportive services for the physically and sensorially limited adult at the postsecondary level. Phase I consisted of removing architectural barriers, establishing an advisory committee, staffing the project, preparing the budget, and purchasing needed equipment. During Phase II the clientele were identified, services were established and offered, and recruitment and publicity tools were developed. Phase III included special programs, e.g., an awareness week to sensitize the campus and community populations to the problems and needs of the handicapped. The major portion of this document is comprised of appended material, some of which are a bibliography; "Support Services for the Physically Limited Handbook," which provides a detailed description of the services offered; description of phase I activities; evaluation and certification procedures for new construction; proposal for removing architectural barriers in parking places; advisory committee members; procedures for support services for the physically handicapped; proposed budget; equipment inventory and description of students served; and papers on college for the physically handicapped, tutorial techniques for the blind, and developing study skills.
