Rehabilitation and Adults with Learning Disabilities. Rehabilitation Research Review #10.
Szuhay, Joseph A.; Williams, John M.
The report reviews 415 documents (1969-1982) on rehabilitation of adults with learning disabilities (LD). The vast majority of the literature reviewed emphasizes LD in children and/or education. A summary of content focuses on five major topics (sample subtopics in parentheses): legislation and regulations (eligibility of LD individuals 16 and older for vocational rehabilitation services); characteristics of LD persons; assessment (scarcity of citations on assessment of adult populations); vocational evaluation training and placement of LD adults in competitive employment); and vocational rehabilitation (needs for inservice training of state vocational rehabilitation personnel). Among recommendations offered is one calling for research on cost effective outcomes of vocational rehabilitation and another urging a nationally acceptable model of state VR services. The annotated bibliography includes information on titles, authors, sources, and publication date. (CL)
