55 Pa. Code § 4210.71. Description.


§ 4210.71. Description.

 (a)  Rehabilitative and training services are ancillary to mental health and intellectual disability care provided on an inpatient or outpatient basis.

 (b)  These services consist of vocational evaluation, work adjustment training, job placement and group living experiences to assist an individual handicapped by mental disability, who may or may not have a physical disability, to reach his best level of social and vocational adaptation. According to the capacity of each individual, services may be successful if they result in competitive employment, transitional or indefinite employment in a sheltered workshop or work activity center, ability to maintain a home, or in enabling the client to achieve his maximum possible level or independent living.

 (c)  These services consist of group programs for teaching or improving self care, personal behavior and social adjustment for persons with a mental disability. Through group training, day care centers may prepare children with a mental disability to attend special classes in the public schools. For other children and for adults these services make continued community living possible by raising the level of social competency and by decreasing the necessity of constant supervision given by their families and others. The services shall include extended work activity programs in sheltered workshops or work activity centers.


   The provisions of this §  4210.71 amended under sections 201(2) and (8) and 202 of the Mental Health and Intellectual Disability Act of 1966 (50 P.S. § §  4201(2) and (8) and 4202).
