Job Support Services
NMDVR provides several avenues to employment through Job Support Services.
These services are designed to assist you in seeking employment through the Vocational Rehabilitation process. A variety of job support services may be provided based on your unique needs. Utilizing these services can be instrumental to success in long-term employment.
An appropriate employment goal is consistent with the unique strengths, resources, priorities, concerns, abilities, capabilities, interests, and informed choice of the eligible individual. It should also result in employment in an integrated setting. Identification of an appropriate employment goal and agreement between the participant and Vocational Rehabilitation Counselor (VRC) on the employment goal is key to successful rehabilitation. In determining where the individual possesses the strengths, resources, priorities, concerns, abilities and capabilities needed to perform the desired employment goals, the VRC may acquire performance-based data through evaluations such as situational assessments, intelligence or aptitude evaluations, and other essential information utilizing any appropriate methods available. These factors include but are not limited to the followings:
- transferable skills
- educational, academic achievement
- financial situation/resources
- level of independence
- motivation to work
- physical/mental limitations
- work behaviors
- job accommodations
- assistive technology
