The article by Patterson looked at Internet use by public vocational rehabilitation agencies. Interestingly, she found that while Internet and intranet use tended to increase job satisfaction and sense of belongness to the organization, counselors may not be using the applications as much as administration believes they are. The final article by Lemaire, Mallik and Stoll describes a model program designed to reach and rehabilitate high-risk youth with learning and psychiatric disabilities. Data from the first year indicate initial success, but the authors suggest that much more research in this area is needed. I hope you will find the articles as interesting and informative as I did.
I want to thank the authors for their contributions to the issue.
