The Vocational Rehabilitation process for adult VR clients and youth aged 14 and up generally follows a four-step process:
Your initial meeting with your DSB Vocational Rehabilitation Counselor (VRC) will focus on learning about your interests and career goals, gathering information, and completing your application for services. New applicants are also provided resource information that can help them move forward.
After your application is submitted, it will be reviewed for eligibility. Determination of eligibility for services is based on rules and regulations found in the Washington Administrative Code.
Once your eligibility has been determined, you will work with your VRC to create a VR Plan. This plan will be your road map to reaching your career goals, including job counseling and employment readiness activities.
Your Vocational Rehabilitation team will continue to help you as you transition into your new career.
DSB's vocational rehabilitation process is built on the foundations created by the Rehabilitation Services Administration.
