R3 Part II Abstract

R3 - Part II: Abstract

Disability, combined with gender, age, race, and/or secondary disability, places a person at a severe labor market disadvantage. Researchers in vocational rehabilitation have addressed issues related to return to work, but largely in conjunction with job placement activities. In addition, the question of what factors optimize the engagement of persons with disabilities in competitive employment remains vaguely answered. Therefore, the focus of this study is to develop a culturally sensitive instrument designed to evaluate the vocational rehabilitation needs of consumers with disabilities and plan therapeutic interventions.
