What is VOCATIONAL REHABILITATION?

Step 1 Icon

Vocational Rehabilitation (VR) is a program that assists individuals with physical, intellectual, mental health and sensory disabilities to obtain and retain employment.

 

More simply, VR helps individuals with disabilities find a job and be more independent.  This involves deciding if a person is eligible, setting an employment goal, putting the goal into a plan, and getting the job services and training needed to get a job.  Job coaching and other employment services may also
be involved. At Opportunities for Ohioans with Disabilities (OOD) both the Bureau of Vocational Rehabilitation (BVR) and the Bureau of Services for the Visually Impaired (BSVI) are involved in providing VR services.
