Vocational rehabilitation


The Division of Rehabilitation Services is West Virginia's primary vocational rehabilitation resource for people with disabilities who want to work. DRS helps many West Virginians prepare for careers consistent with their interests, needs and abilities. DRS helps many more to maintain their current employment if a disability is making it difficult to continue working.

Vocational rehabilitation provides direct, personalized services. During the vocational rehabilitation process, a counselor will work with you one-on-one to plan an individualized program that leads to paid employment.

You will actively participate in planning your services, and how those services will be delivered. Services may include evaluation, restoration, vocational training, occupational tools and equipment, assistive technology and job placement assistance.
