Computers in Vocational Rehabilitation: Current Trends and Future Applications. Rehabilitation Research Review 17.
The report reviews 86 documents (1966 to 1982) concerned with trends and applications of computers in vocational rehabilitation of the disabled. The literature is analyzed in four areas: the counseling process, agency management, training and education, and consumer concerns. Six recommendations resulting from the reviews are given such as the need for a study of the usefulness of existing computer-based occupational information systems in rehabilitation programs, the need to motivate vocational rehabilitation agency personnel to utilize desktop computers to assist in agency management activities, and the need for training rehabilitation personnel in computer sciences and information management. The annotated reference list is organized alphabetically by author within each of the four areas and includes information on title, source, date, publisher, and brief non-evaluative annotation. (DB)
