Transition Brochure
Vocational rehabilitation services are available to students in high school who have a disability that results in a substantial barrier to employment, not just those who take special education classes. Eligibility may be determined within 60 days.

Students should start Rehabilitation program during the last two years of high school. Students may apply directly to Vocational Rehabilitation or may be referred.

After eligibility is determined, the student's family resources are considered before Vocational Rehabilitation agrees to pay all or a portion of the costs for services. Clients with adequate financial support may be asked to share in the costs.
