National Council on the Handicapped. [Third] Annual Report.
National Council on the Handicapped, Washington, DC.
During its third year of operation, the National Council on the Handicapped continued to develop priorities for the National Institute of Handicapped Research (NIHR) and worked to identify all research on disabilities and handicaps that is currently underway. In addition, the council's Committee on Services undertook a review and assessment of policies, programs, legislation, and priorities related to federally supported services for disabled and handicapped persons. Addressed by the council's research committee were the state of current research and the need for future research pertaining to disabilities and handicaps. Included among the other activities that the council oversaw in 1982 were the provision of vocational rehabilitative services by the Rehabilitation Services Administration to over 200,000 persons; comprehensive research by the NIHR on the long-term consequences and care of disabilities; the development of a computerized repository for data on all federally funded rehabilitation research; provision of grants to support preschool, elementary, and especially secondary education programs; and efforts to resolve the problems of disabled persons receiving Social Security. (Appendixes to this report include biographies of the 1982 council members, a discussion of the committee structure of the council, the text of its bylaws, descriptions and goals of the Interagency Rehabilitation Research Information System and the Interagency Committee for Handicapped Research, and a list of federal agencies funding rehabilitation research.)
