Overview of Navigating Vocational Rehabilitation for Parents and Youth

Join the Client Assistance Program staff for an interactive presentation to learn about navigating vocational rehabilitation (VR) services. The workshop will cover the purpose of the VR program and the role of each party (consumer and VR agency staff) in implementing services to reach an employment goal. We will also discuss how parents support the process, the unwritten expectations of the consumer and the VR agency, how to recognize when something might be going wrong, and how to get back on track. Come ready to interact and bring any questions you have. 

Target Audience: Students and youth with disabilities ages 14 up to their 22nd birthday, their families, Pre-ETS stakeholders, special education personnel

  1. Gain a basic understanding of VR and Pre-Employment Transition Services
