Eligibility for VR Services - To be eligible for VR services, a person must have a disability that limits their ability to find a job, and limits it in a way that could be helped through vocational rehabilitation.. A person's VR counselor is usually the one who decides if they are eligible. The Rehab Act says this assessment should include a review of all information about the person's condition. Often this includes medical, psychological, and financial records. If additional information is needed, tests can be ordered to determine skills, limitations, intelligence, social adjustments, or anything else relevant to the assessment.
Employment Goal - The type of job a person wants to have. Compare this to Employment Outcome, which is actually having a job. Employment goals are part of a person's IWRP, and employment outcomes are evaluated against these goals.
Employment Outcome - when a person gets a full or part-time, competitive job in the open, or "integrated", job market. This is different from an Employment Goal, which is the job a person would like to get. See the Rehab Act's definition (Sec. 7, 5)
