In one year, five Case Managers provided a wide range of rehabilitation services directly to 133 multiply sensorially disabled clients (the target group) and indirectly to 212 other target clients. The Case Managers encouraged 70 agencies to become interested in, and in some cases to initiate services to, target clients. In addition to providing a considerable amount of direct services, the project staff laid the foundation for continuing improvement in target clients' welfare, by disseminating knowledge other service providers and encouraging them to raise their expectations of rehabilitation outcomes for the target group. Although long-term benefits cannot be assessed in this short period, and although one out of ten clients failed to continue in the project, the overall results justify added implementation of the case-management approach in order to assess further its value in serving the target group.
