New Transition Video
Today in my email I received a link to the video, “Working with Indiana Vocational Rehabilitation Services” from, The Center on Living and Careers. They have released this video to help teachers, students, families and any other potential VR consumers be aware of and better understand its services. The post describes the video as, “Developed by the Center on Community Living and Careers (CCLC) and Draw4, an animation/illustration company, this 4 ½ minutes video demonstrates the VR process, discusses eligibility criteria, and explains how VR can help people with disabilities who want to gain skills, find a job after high school or college, start a new career, or even help get a new job if they’ve lost one because of their disability.” This is a great tool for all of those students and their parents, getting ready for the big transition. Follow this link to view the video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fS9Hvf7Fglo Unlike other great videos, (Simply Said: Introducing Vocational Rehabilitation Services) This video is all about Indiana’s services and contains the appropriate links to services Indiana families can use.
