Similar Benefits in Rehabilitation: A User's Guide for Counselors and Administrators. Volume 4: Incentives for Counselors and Administrators.
Crystal, Ralph M.; And Others
This user's guide, the last of four training modules for similar benefits usage, is the result of a project of the University of Michigan Rehabilitation Research Institute in conjunction with the Virginia Department of Rehabilitative Services (DRS) model program evaluation unit to examine the issue of similar benefits in the state-federal rehabilitation program. The introduction reviews the goals and objectives of the similar benefits project and briefly describes each module. Preceding the text of the volume is a list of frequently asked questions about similar benefits presented in major topic areas. This final volume discusses utilization incentive issues. Procedures for evaluation and monitoring are presented along with the descriptions of the counselors' and administrators' roles in the areas of similar benefits. Incentives for counselors, administrators, and the rehabilitation agency are considered with the suggestion that state agency administrators should understand the political ramifications of using similar benefits. The necessity of full documentation by vocational rehabilitation agencies to present a case for similar benefits usage is emphasized. (Author/NRB)
