Summary

This final report is a practical document, specifying techniques and procedures found effective during a project to (1) demonstrate a model of appropriate vocational service for developmentally disabled adults and (2) provide technical assistance and training to community facilities serving these persons. Chapters 2-6 discuss model components: intake, vocational assessment, vocational adjustment, vocational training, and cooperative programing. Chapter 2, The Intake Process: Personal and Background Information, discusses assessment factors and functions. Chapter 3 describes the prescriptive vocational assessment approach used that focuses on three areas of client data: personal and background information, formal and informal tests and measurements; and work sample training to acquisition and production data. Work Adjustment (chapter 4) discusses the simulated high demand adjustment environment to teach job-appropriate behaviors. Chapter 5, Task Analysis, Training, and Supervision, describes steps taken to provide effective training and experiences in several sheltered facilities. Topics in chapters 6, 7, and 8 include a project-operated lawn service program, training for competitive employment, and counseling services. Chapter 9 presents the project-developed inservice program and model. And chapter 10 briefly discusses preparing the family for the developmentally disabled child's independence and training centers. (Appendixes are available separately. See Note.) (YLB)
