Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This paper presents an extended evaluation model which provides a close and interactive conceptual link between evaluation and treatment processes. For some time there has been a trend in traditional vocational (re)habilitation practices to separate evaluation and treatment as if they were somehow distinct entities. This separateness can no longer continue, particularly now that vocational (re)habilitation programming is being broadened to include those with the most severe handicaps.
