Summary

This report focuses on technology training programs for disabled persons, the contributions of access technology to the employment of disabled persons, the ability of traditional rehabilitation centers to train disabled persons for advanced technology occupations, and the placement and employment of disabled persons trained in new technologies. Following an introduction, the second chapter explores the impacts of new technology on the employment of disabled persons and describes the project, conducted by Rehabilitation International and sponsored by the International Labour Office, that resulted in this collection of papers. Subsequent chapters present the papers, as follows: "New Technology Training Programs for Disabled Persons in Great Britain" (Paul Cornes and others); "The Effect of New Technology on the Employment of Blind and Visually Impaired Persons in Four Western European Countries" (Lawrence A. Scadden); "Factors Associated with the Traditional Rehabilitation Centre's Ability To Train Disabled Persons for Advanced Technology Occupations" (Michael J. Leahy and Robert Leneway); "Computer-Based Technology for Disabled Persons in Working Life: A Holistic Approach" (Jan Breding and Ulf Keijer); "The Contributions of New Access Technology to the Employment of Disabled Persons in Japan" (Shinichi Okada and Takeshi Yatougo); "New Technologies and the Employment of Disabled Persons in Israel" (Emanuel) Chigier); "New Technologies and the Employment of Disabled Persons in Four Developed Countries" (Jacques Dawans); and "New Technology in Rehabilitation: A Hungarian Perspective" (Gyorgy Konczei). A final chapter draws conclusions and makes recommendations. (JDD)
