Vocational Rehabilitation Services: A Texas Primer
~~The program delivery system for vocational rehabilitation includes services provided directly by VR field staff as well as those purchased directly from a variety of community rehabilitation programs and other vendors as necessary for the customer to meet his or her employment goal. In addition, VR customers may be referred to services offered by other community programs and WIOA core partners.
VR services are individualized to meet the needs of each participant. Services support the development of knowledge, skills, abilities, and behaviors needed to reach the employment goal. Services available and provided may include:
…. Work-based learning experiences for high school students with disabilities;
• Training in work place behaviors;
• Support for customized employment, self-employment and supported employment; and • Instruction in self-advocacy (Texas Workforce Solutions, 2017).
