There are several services an individual may be involved in over the course of their experience at SVRC. For those involved in Vocational Rehabilitation, many areas of interest are addressed. Specific to the individual’s area of interest and/or need, the following is a list of potential areas to improve in order to successfully achieve gainful employment: identify vocational skills and aptitudes, job seeking skills (resume writing, practice filling out job applications, and improving interview skills), job-related skills, daily living/community survival skills, develop and refine positive work habits, develop and maintain positive working and social relationships with co-workers and supervisors, assistance with issues such as hygiene, dependability, work quality and speed, family interference, and mobility training for using public transportation.

Vocational Rehabilitation Services include:

Skill Building Services
Offers individuals opportunities to maintain or increase work productivity, and maximize earnings in a closely supervised setting. Examples of services include teaching participants to focus on work and attend to production tasks and to raise work performance, pace and stamina to job readiness levels. Individuals will acquire appropriate work skills, work behaviors, attitudes, and functional skills necessary to be successful at work.

Community Volunteering
Individuals have the opportunity to volunteer at one of our many volunteer sites (delivering meals to the aged, cleaning non-profit agencies, assisting with social activities at in-patient care facilities, preparing items for re-sale at local thrift shops, and many more). This provides assistance in learning different “jobs” in the community while helping others.

Community Living Supports (CLS)
Assists individuals to become knowledgeable of their community and to use its resources in a safe and productive way. CLS builds socialization, money handling, community awareness, interpersonal communications, and community safety skills. CLS experiences assists individuals to become familiar with the locations of important community resources that may lead to employment safety skills.

School to Work Adjustment Services
The agency contracts with the Intermediate School Districts and the Department of Career Development – Rehabilitation Services to provide vocational programming for students with paid work experiences and a variety of opportunities to learn about employment roles and responsibilities, develop employment skills, and to become acquainted with various businesses in the community. The course toward independence and community employment is designed to be as direct as possible.

Work Experience
This short-term intensive work readiness program provides opportunities for individuals to develop and refine positive work ethics and habits. Individuals are paid for the quality and quantity of work they produce. A Rehabilitation Services Specialist is assigned to each individual. Feedback on progress is presented in monthly staff reporting meetings with individuals, referral sources representatives, parents and teachers, if appropriate, and significant others that the individual may wish to have in attendance.

Job Coaching
The agency provides support to those who need it through Job Coaches. Job Coaches work with an individual to develop work place skills and working on the goals set forth in the individual’s rehabilitation plan. Job Coaches are trained in a Job Coaching curriculum that was developed by SVRC.

Community Based Evaluation
This short-term intensive evaluation of the individual’s skills and abilities is based in the community and matched with the goals of the evaluation. A Rehabilitation Services Specialist works with the referral source to determine the areas that need to be evaluated and develops an evaluation plan from that information. The individual and the referral source are given information on the evaluation process that includes strengths, areas needing improvement, and strategies for improvement in the work place.

Placement (Plan Development, Placement, and 90 Day Follow Up)
The Job Placement department coordinates and assists with the following services: Job Seeking Skills, Job Shadowing, Individual Vocational Training for high school students, Job Development, Competitive and Supported Employment, Work Tryouts, and Follow Up services. Staff also serves as a resource for task and job accommodations, orientations for employers to various aspects of ADA legislation and referrals for services to businesses. Placement targets various aspects of Job Search and Job Retention.

Supported Employment
Assists individuals in securing paid community employment. Jobs may be supported in nature or enclave settings utilizing on-going supports as necessary.
