The Panel suggested that appropriate vocational rehabilitation services be available prior to, during and after termination of formal education, including:

Job placement handbook cover

Evaluation, counseling and job placement

Joint school-work-experience programs operated cooperatively
by schools and vocational rehabilitation agencies

On-the-job training programs

Employment training facilities

Sheltered workshops for workers capable of productive work
in a supervised, sheltered setting

Vocational rehabilitation services in conjunction with residential institutions

Counseling services to parents to provide them with an adequate
understanding of the employment potentials of their children

Coordination of vocational counseling with the entire school program

The recommendations from the President's Panel supported some major legislative action.
