Vocational Rehabilitation: Understanding Service Options
At the nucleus of every successful VR employment goal is a well-delineated Individual Plan for Employment (IPE), often referred to as a roadmap of services that lead to employment. By better understanding the myriad services offered by VR, an individual who is deaf or hard of hearing is better positioned to make informed and self-determined choices about their employment future.
Vocational Rehabilitation offers a wide range of services. Some services are tangible, such as an alarm clock, uniform for work, hearing aid, etc. Other services are more intangible in nature, such as counseling, soft skills training or career guidance.
