Description of Program
Provides individualized vocational rehabilitation services both directly and through a network of approved vendors to help persons with disabilities prepare for, obtain, or maintain employment. Counselors conduct face-to-face interviews, assist customers with setting vocational goals with selecting services and service providers in order to develop an Individualized Plan for Employment (IPE).
OVR provides a wide range of services, including:
Certain services are subject to a Financial Needs Test (FNT) and may require financial participation by the customer. Counseling and guidance, diagnostic services, assessments, information and referral, job development and placement, and personal services such as readers or sign language interpreters are provided at no cost to the individual. Also, by law OVR customers receiving Social Security benefits for their disability (SSI, SSDI) are exempt from OVR’s Financial Needs Test.
