100 Years of Vocational Rehabilitation

IVRS Administrator David Mitchell

IVRS is involved with how we Re-Think VR performance. This has been integrated into strategic planning, our State Work Plan and in management meetings. The VR program is celebrating 100 years of existence along with the 30 year anniversary of the ADA and 50 years of the passing of the Developmental Disabilities Act.  2020 is a perfect time to reflect, vision and Re-Think how we continue to make a difference in the lives of individuals with disabilities that we serve.  A quick summary of talking points are:
