Human Rehabilitation Techniques. Contract Papers. Volume III, Part A.
Clotfelter, J.; And Others
Volume III, Section A of a six-volume final report (which covers the findings of a research project on policy and technology related to rehabilitation of disabled individuals) presents five papers which examine important rehabilitation-oriented issues. In the first paper, "Policymaking Process," J. Clotfelter reviews how policy is made (including the initiation and modification of federal legislation), how policy is implemented (including the time lag between national and state adoption of social policies and diffusion among states), and the role of state and local governments (including general revenue sharing and state-local support for social health, and rehabilitation programs). A paper on "Legal Status of the Disabled" (C. Bubany) outlines the findings of a survey of federal and state legislation and judicial activity relating to the disabled. A third paper, "Some Economic Considerations in Disability" by J. Worrall, considers such topics as programs and costs, income and earnings of the disabled, and the benefits and costs of vocational rehabilitation. E. Boggs in a paper titled "The Changing Role of Income Maintenance Systems and Their Potential Impact on the Future of the Disabled in the United States" projects certain trends and issues related to that particular set of technologies usually referred to as "income maintenance" or "income security" programs and considers the consequences of changing life style of the handicapped on society. A final paper, "The Futures of Public Education for the Handicapped" by R. Wiegerink and V. Feudo, is designed to assess the current status of public education of the handicapped and through a review of recent developments in the field to suggest possible future trends. (SBH)
