Job Training for People with Disabilities is Available from ACCES-VR

July 3rd, 2017

Individuals with disabilities who need help with vocational rehabilitation or support for independent living should be aware of Adult Career and Continuing Education Services-Vocational Rehabilitation (ACCES-VR).

ACCES-VR helps people with disabilities gain and keep employment, and assists with support for independent living, through rehabilitation, training, education and career development. Funding for some services is based on financial need, and most services are provided at no cost.

The program provides vocational rehabilitation services that include assessments and evaluations, vocational counseling and guidance, special transportation, rehabilitation technology, work readiness, adaptive driver training, tutoring, reading and note taking services, modifications to homes or worksites, job development and placement, on the job training, and job coaching.

In addition to vocational rehabilitation services, transition services are available to young people who are finishing school and seeking work or higher education. ACCES-VR works closely with school districts to help youth with disabilities prepare for transition and employment, community living, or post-secondary education. The Youth Employment Services (YES) program helps students transition to the world of work, and provides a schedule of services that accommodate the school day and academic calendar as necessary.

ACCES-VR district offices are located in Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, the Bronx, White Plains and other locations, where applications for services are available. The best way to get started with the program is to attend an orientation session. To learn more, visit http://www.acces.nysed.gov/vr.
