An Extension Worker's Guide to Serving the Handicapped. Cooperative Extension Project for the Handicapped.
Utah State Univ., Logan. Cooperative Extension Service.
This booklet provides extension personnel with basic information on how to help handicapped individuals through referral to the appropriate service provider. A series of steps is suggested for locating help for a client when no appropriate service provider can be readily located. Lists are then presented of possible sources of help in these areas: counseling, vocational assistance, legal services, educational advice, recreational programs, and medical services and evaluations. Next are listed names and addresses of some national agencies and organizations that can provide information about their organizations and may have publications available. Six examples of cases encountered by extension agents are included. (YLB)
