Developing State Agency Facility Plans: A Guide to Planning and Implementation. Michigan Studies in Rehabilitation Utilization Series: 4.
Miller, Juliet V.; Wargel, James F.
Intended for use in inservice training of vocational rehabilitation agency personnel, this facility planning guide is designed to (1) help state agencies understand the new facility planning requirements of the Rehabilitation Comprehensive Services and Developmental Disabilities Amendments of 1978, (2) provide information about a six-step planning process which can be used to develop a state agency facility plan, and (3) suggest a possible outline for a written state agency facility plan. An introductory section provides an overview of the amendments which require state agencies to include plans for development and utilization of rehabilitation facilities in their state plans and program and financial plans. Each succeeding section is devoted to one step in the planning model which was developed during a short-term training seminar: (1) policy statement, (2) needs assessment, (3) resource assessment, (4) prioritized goals, (5) implementation plan, and (6) evaluation design. A sample outline for organizing written plans is included along with four appendixes: comprehensive list of service needs, consideration of similar benefits checklist, similar benefits directory, and the Ohio Rehabilitation Services Commission Survey of Rehabilitation Facilities (a questionnaire).
