Abstract:

This report details the outcomes of a study conducted in response to concerns about the impact of workforce development and welfare reform upon persons with disabilities being served by community rehabilitation programs. Twenty-three focus groups involving over 200 individuals were held in 13 different cities across eight states. Participants came from the rehabilitation community (consumers, consumer advocates, community rehabilitation program staff, and vocational rehabilitation staff) and other community programs. The report discusses the various issues from the perspectives of persons with disabilities and the responses by community rehabilitation programs. The study found consensus among participants that the intent of the reforms was on target for addressing certain deficits within employment and welfare programs for populations without disabilities. With regard to servicing people with disabilities, however, significant problems in implementation of the programs were consistently cited. Successful implementation of the reforms appeared to be dependent on how well local communities worked together to implement these programs and how much state and federal planners allowed communities the flexibility needed to serve different consumers with various needs.
