An Analysis of Vocational Rehabilitation Services for Consumers with Hearing Impairments Who Received College or University Training
Boutin, Daniel L.; Wilson, Keith
Rehabilitation Counseling Bulletin, v52 n3 p156-166 2009
The purpose of this study was to determine the predictive ability of vocational rehabilitation services for deaf and hard of hearing consumers who received college and university training. The RSA-911 database for fiscal year 2004 was analyzed to evaluate the effectiveness of 21 services in leading to competitive employment. A model predicting competitive employment included job search assistance, job placement, maintenance, rehabilitation technology, transportation, information and referral services, and other services. Results from the logistic regression analysis are discussed in relation to the implications to practitioners and educators. (Contains 4 tables.)
