New programs, processes, and policy changes bring updates (something along the lines of “Change is the only constant”). Today, those updates come from Indiana Vocational Rehabilitation Services. With VR’s order of selection and its implementation of Pre-Employment Transition Services (Pre-ETS) in schools around the state, the agency wanted to update teachers and administrators about VR applications, eligibility, and referrals for transitioning students.
As a result, VR worked with staff at both the Center on Community Living and Careers and our own Indiana Secondary Transition Resource Center to update the “Working with Indiana Vocational Rehabilitation” fact sheet series:
Download and share! Print copies of the Students and Families fact sheet to use at family information nights or transition fairs, hand them out during case conferences, or send the link to students/families in transition.
All three “Working with VR” fact sheets are now available on the Indiana IEP (IIEP) system under the documents section. We’ve also uploaded them to the INSTRC website as resources. You can find them whenever you need them by typing “Indiana VR,” or “Working with Indiana VR,” or just “VR” in the INSTRC resource search bar. You’ll also find them on INSTRC in Resource Collections, under the “New Administrators” and “Professionals New to Transition” tabs.
