Abstract

This article reports on a survey of 871 visually impaired persons with developmental disabilities in 42 states to determine the effect of separate state blindness-specific vocational rehabilitation agencies on the receipt of services. The results indicate that visually impaired persons in states with specialized agencies are less likely than are those in other states to receive services, except when an agency's budget is large.
