Tribally Operated Section 130 Vocational Rehabilitation Projects, Third-Year Follow-Up. Final Report.
Lonetree, Georgia L.
The purpose of this study was to follow up two previous studies on the vocational rehabilitation needs of American Indians with disabilities and the effectiveness of projects authorized by the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, Title 1, Part D, Section 130 to meet those needs. A self-evaluative questionnaire was developed and mailed to the project directors of 14 American Indian Vocational Rehabilitation Projects, with 8 projects responding from Alaska, Arizona, Colorado, Montana, New Mexico, and Washington. The questionnaire gathered data on number of clients served, the screening process used to determine eligibility, rehabilitation status, percentage of severely and multiply disabled clients, inclusion of American Indians with disabilities in policy development and implementation, referral sources, types of disabilities, commonly needed and utilized services, and types of service providers. Results indicate that projects have been progressively building upon and improving their services to American Indians with disabilities. Ten recommendations are offered. Appendices provide survey forms from all three phases of the study. (Contains 12 references.) (JDD)
