A Follow-Up Study in Vocational Rehabilitation.
Main, Douglas M.
A study investigated consumer satisfaction and employment status for successfully rehabilitated vocational rehabilitation (VR) clients from a central Kansas general caseload and identified clients in need of further services. Four independent variables were studied: severity of disability, disability groups, time elapsed since closure, and work fulfillment for clients who were employed. The dependent variables were scores from the Vocational Rehabilitation Process and Product subscales of the Vocational Rehabilitation Consumer Satisfaction Inventory. The sample consisted of 49 VR clients. Two composite null hypotheses were tested using a three-way analysis of variance and a one-way analysis of variance. Sixteen comparisons were made; eight were main effects and eight were interactions. Two main effects were statistically significant at the .05 level: time elapsed since closure for the dependent variable VR process satisfaction and work fulfillment for the dependent variable VR product satisfaction. Three of the four statistically significant comparisons were for interactions: (1) severity of disability, disability group, and time elapsed since closure for the dependent variable VR Process Satisfaction; (2) severity of disability and disability group for product satisfaction; and (3) severity of disability and time elapsed since closure for product satisfaction.
