AbstractThe purpose of this study was to examine the effect that vocational rehabilitation services have on the employability of learning disabled adults in Arizona. Vocational rehabilitation case files of 134 learning disabled adults were reviewed. The services rendered fell into four categories: psychotherapy, learning disability remediation, vocational training, and counseling provided by the vocational rehabilitation counselor. It was found that the incidence of employment did not vary significantly across services. Additionally, the incidence of employment subsequent to provision of services did not vary significantly from that of vocational rehabilitation clients who were not learning disabled. The results suggested that vocational rehabilitation services had a positive effect on the employability of the learning disabled adults. Demographic, input, and outcome data was included in the appendices.
