Guidelines for Evaluating, Reviewing and Enhancing Employment-Related Services for People with Developmental Disabilities.
National Association of Developmental Disabilities Councils, Washington, DC.
These guidelines are designed to assist the State Developmental Disabilities Councils in reviewing and evaluating existing programs and services as well as advocating the filling of gaps and the enhancement and expansion of employment-related services. An introductory section makes recommendations for use of these guidelines and presents some basic strategies for the study and analysis of employment-related services. The seven sections of the manual are organized in a sequence designed to permit the State Developmental Disabilities Councils to (1) review the major programs most directly involved, analyze the issues or assumptions, explore the critical elements, and review the constraints, resolutions, and problems associated with the delivery of employment-related services; (2) examine the prevalence of and potential for cooperative and collaborative agreement among agencies and organizations; (3) analyze the other potential funding sources; (4) evaluate gaps and barriers, incentives, and disincentives influencing and affecting employment-related services; and (5) consider the options and alternatives to existing employment service delivery systems. Following a list of references is a comprehensive array of attachments to provide specific details regarding a program, statute, or policy, including the Education of the Handicapped Act, Job Training Partnership Act, Rehabilitation Act, and Vocational Education Act.
