National Accreditation Council for Agencies Serving the Blind and Visually Handicapped, New York, NY.
This self-study and evaluation guide on vocational services is one of 28 guides designed for organizations who are undertaking a self-study as part of the process for accreditation from the National Accreditation Council (NAC) for agencies serving the blind and visually handicapped. Provided are lists of standards to be appraised by the self-evaluation teams or the extent to which the organization meets the standards (excellent, satisfactory, adequate, poor, minimal, and not applicable). Areas of standards considered are planning for vocational services; vocational rehabilitation personnel; vocational evaluation; work adjustment; vocational training; placement, followup, and post-employment; and evaluation. Throughout the guide, space is provided for written comments to be made such as an explanation of a rating or why a standard did not apply. The concluding part of the guide provides six questions, which permit the agency to describe its plan for continuing evaluation and improvement of vocational services. (Other accreditation guides are available--see note.) (JH)
