Vocational Rehabilitation for Native Americans
“INDEPENDENCE THROUGH EMPLOYMENT”
To be eligible to participate in the VRNA project:
CREATING and WORKING YOUR INDIVIDUALIZED PLAN FOR EMPLOYMENT (IPE)
Once you’ve been determined eligible, you, the counselor, and if appropriate, the job development specialist will work together to create the
plan you need to reach your employment goal.
The Individualized Plan for Employment (IPE) is customized to meet your individual strengths, resources, priorities, concerns, abilities, and informed choice. The IPE contains the following information:
The types of support that might be included in an IPE:
Services begin once the IPE is contracted by the project director. The length of time it takes to reach your employment goal depends on your disability, your job choice, your attitude and your willingness to work towards achieving your goal. It is your responsibility to make the plan successful.
Once you begin working; the counselor and job developer will continue to provide support for you, and if necessary, the employer. We want to make sure everything is working out well for everyone. After you have successfully completed 90 days of employment, your case can be closed.
Post-employment services are available after your case is closed. Often, as time goes on, a person’s disability might change, a work area changes, the way a task is done can change…change happens. We can help you and your employer adjust to the changes and keep you working.
