Mission

The Vocational Rehab program assists people with disabilities to transition from school to work or to re-enter the work force after an illness or injury.

Program Description

A person may be eligible if he or she has a physical or mental impairment that substantially interferes with the ability to work and vocational rehabilitation services are required for this person to become employable. When appropriate, VRS will pay for the diagnostic and evaluation services necessary to determine whether or not an applicant is eligible.

After a person is certified eligible for VRS, the VR Counselor, student, and family will work together to develop a Individualized Plan for Employment. This plan may include needed services that are not provided by the local school and could also include services associated with the final community-based job.

When students have completed their high school education, VR services can continue to be provided to meet the employment needs of individuals with disabilities.
