Services and Contract
Vocational Evaluation Services
Vocational Evaluation Services are one or more types of standardized vocational
tests used to obtain objective information from the DVR customer in response to
specific questions presented by a DVR Counselor about a customer’s work-related
strengths and limitations.
Trial Work Experience
Contractors find and secure position(s) in realistic work settings
prior to eligibility
to determine if an individual is eligible for VR services OR if there is clear and
convincing evidence the individual cannot benefit in terms of an employment outcome.
Community Based Assessment Services
Contractors are responsible for finding and securing positions in realistic
work settings to help assess work interests, abilities and identify any
employment barriers a customer may face. This process will assist in
identifying the nature and extent of support(s) and accommodation(s) needed
for the customer to obtain and maintain competitive employment.
Contractors must locate, secure and place a customer into a paid integrated job
as mutually agreed by the DVR Counselor, customer and CRP. Job Placement is
accomplished when a customer completes their first day of paid employment as defined
by the employer.
Intensive Training Services
One-on-one job skills training and support provided at the supported employment
job site to enable a DVR customer to: 1) attain job stabilization in on-the-job
performance, with job supports; 2) meet their employers expected levels of work
productivity; and 3) transition to long-term Extended Services as provided by an
entity other than DVR.
Job Retention Services
Individualized on-the-job-site training and support services that enable a DVR customer to learn
the essential functions of a job; meet the employer’s expected level of job
performance; and retain their employment for ninety (90) calendar days past the
point of Job Placement.
