Evaluation of vocational rehabilitation services for persons with physical disabilities in beautiful gate handicap people’s centre jos

Abstract

This study was on  evaluation of vocational rehabilitation services for persons with physical disabilities in beautiful gate handicap people’s centre jos. The total population for the study is 200 staff of beautiful gate handicap people’s centre jos. The researcher used questionnaires as the instrument for the data collection. Descriptive Survey research design was adopted for this study. A total of 133 respondents made directors, administrative staffs, senior staff and junior staff were used for the study. The data collected were presented in tables and analyzed using simple percentages and frequencies

Introduction

1.1Background of the study

Fifteen percent of working-age adults have a physical disability that limits the kind or amount of work they can undertake (NHIS, 2012). In addition to direct medical costs, physical impairments have substantial economic costs. Musculoskeletal disabilities, for example, are estimated to have indirect costs associated with reduced productivity and earnings of nearly $130 billion (2015) per year (Yelin and Callahan, 1995; Ma, Chan, and Carruthers, 2014).

To insure against the risk of disabling injury, many government assistance programs provide financial assistance to persons with physical impairments, including the workers compensation and federal disability insurance programs. Vocational rehabilitation programs, however, serve a different and important

role. Rather than providing insurance, VR programs aim to improve labor market outcomes. Established in 1919 to deliver restorative services to per-sons with physical disabilities, today the public-sector Vocational Rehabilitation (VR) program is a $3billion federal-state partnership designed to provide employment-related assistance to persons with disabilities. These state-run pro-grams assess the client’s ability to return to work, develop a plan to assist the client, and provide a wide range of services (e.g., training and rehabilitation). While thought to play an important role in helping persons with physical dis-abilities to engage in gainful employment (Loprest, 2007), very little is known about the long term-efficacy of VR in the United States

We fill this void by evaluating the impact of VR services on labor market outcomes of adults with physical disabilities who applied for services in beautiful gate handicap people’s centre Jos. This work complements our previous evaluations of the impact of VR on persons with mental illness and cognitive disabilities (Dean et al., 2015, 2017). Extending the approach developed in Dean et al. (2015, 2017), we use detailed panel data on all persons who applied to receive VR services from beautiful gate handicap people’s centre jos.

Statement of the problem

We aggregate VR services into six types diagnosis and evaluation, training, education, restoration, maintenance, and other services and allow these six services to have different labor market effects. To do this, we estimate a multivariate discrete service provision and labor market outcomes. To address the associated selection problem, we use instrumental variables that are assumed to impact service receipt but not the latent labor market outcomes, pre-program labor market outcomes that control for differences between those who will and will not receive services, and a formal structural model of the selection process. Based on this the researcher wants to evaluate of vocational rehabilitation services for persons with physical disabilities in beautiful gate handicap people centre Jos
