Abstract:

JWK PROPOSES TO DEVELOP INFORMATION AND TRAINING PRODUCTS WHICH WILL ASSIST MILD AND MODERATELY HANDICAPPED YOUTH AGES18 TO 21 TO OBTAIN SERVICES AS THEY MOVE FROM EDUCATIONALLY DOMINATED SERVICES TO JOB TRAINING AND REHABILITATION SERVICES FOR ADULTS. A POORLY DOCUMENTED BUT MAJOR GAP IN SERVICES DURING THIS TRANSITION PERIOD HAS BEEN IDENTIFIED BY ORGANIZATIONS SERVING DISABLED PERSONS AND SPECIAL EDUCATION AND REHABILITATION PROFESSIONALS. THE RESULTS OF THE PROPOSED PROJECT WOULD BE PRESENTED IN A VARIETY OF FORMATS AND DESIGNED TO TEACH HANDICAPPED YOUNG PEOPLE REQUISITE SKILLS TO OBTAIN SERVICES FROM A FRAGMENTED SERVICE DELIVERY SYSTEM. THE PHASE I ACTIVITIES WILL INVENTORY CURRENT RESOURCES AND ASSESS THE NEED FOR BOTH ADDITIONAL SKILL TRAINING FOR HANDICAPPED YOUTH AND AN IMPROVED INFORMATION SYSTEM. THIS INFORMATION, COUPLED WITHAN ASSESSMENT OF PRIVATE SECTOR INTEREST IN SPONSORING AND DISSEMINATING PROJECT PRODUCTS, WILL COMPRISE THE FINAL REPORT. THIS REPORT WILL RECOMMEND SPECIFIC PRODUCTS AND PRESENTATION FORMATS TO BE DEVELOPED IN PHASE II; PROVIDE ESTIMATED PHASE II AND III DEVELOPMENT, MARKETING, AND DISSEMINATION COSTS; AND IDENTIFY PROBABLE PRIVATE SECTOR SPONSORS FOR PHASE III ACTIVITIES.
