Let's start with this video for a quick overview of Vocational Rehabilitation and its services.

The Wyoming Department of Workforce Services is committed to helping people with disabilities establish and reach vocational goals that help them become productive working citizens. During any given year, the Wyoming Department of Workforce Services - Vocational Rehabilitation Division actively works with more than 4,000 of Wyoming's citizens with disabilities, and, on average, approximately 700 of those citizens successfully complete a rehabilitation program and enter the workforce. For every dollar spent on Vocational Rehabilitation services, a consumer earns, on average, $11 in increased taxable income.

The Wyoming Department of Workforce Services - Vocational Rehabilitation Division can provide only those services which are necessary for eligible individuals to reach the employment goal agreed to in the Individualized Plan for Employment. These services may include, but are not limited to:

  • Eligibility Assessment
  • Counseling and Guidance
  • Referral Services
  • Job Search and Placement Assistance
  • Job Retention and Career Follow-Up
  • Vocational and Other Training Services
  • Facilitation of diagnosis and treatment of physical and mental impairments

  • Deaf and Blind Interpretive Services
  • Rehabilitation Teaching Services
  • Occupational Licenses, Tools and Equipment
  • Self-Employment Opportunities
  • Rehabilitation Technology Services
  • Transition Services (from school-to-work)
  • Supported Employment Services

The criteria for determining eligibility for Vocational Rehabilitation Services are as follows:

  • The individual has a physical or mental impairment;
  • The impairment constitutes or results in a substantial impediment to employment;
  • The individual shall be presumed to be able to benefit in terms of an employment outcome from the provision of Vocational Rehabilitation services unless there is clear and convincing evidence that the applicant is incapable of benefiting in terms of an employment outcome from Vocational Rehabilitation services; and
  • The applicant requires services to prepare for, enter into, engage in, regain or retain gainful employment consistent with the applicant's strengths, concerns, abilities, capabilities and informed choice
