Young adults with disabilities require specialized support to transition to the workforce. Vocational rehabilitation (VR) funds programs that help and reimburse OT services if they are medically necessary and requested. OT practitioners must understand how to interface with VR to ensure clients can access these services. This presentation will help OT practitioners connect with VR to support postsecondary transition and expand OT's role with VR. Examples of transition evaluations that are relevant to VR will be provided.
