Summary

The main purpose of this project was to demonstrate the effectiveness of personal and family counseling services in facilitating rehabilitation and family adjustment of the adult deaf in Los Angeles County. Data came from a program of case work services ranging from consultation and referral to personal interviews with a population of about 3,000 deaf counseling applicants in Los Angeles County. The project successfully attracted applicants, categorized deaf clients according to types of problems, and acted as an information and referral service for the community. Recruitment and training of professional personnel was achieved to the extent necessary to accomplish positive results with most clients. By demonstrating the feasibility of this type of counseling, pointing out the special needs of the deaf, and identifying the skills necessary to work with the deaf, the program was generally successful.
