in this field will tell you right up front that vocational rehabilitation
is not about disabilities, it’s about possibilities.
The objective of the
rehabilitation sciences is to facilitate the ability of people with disabilities
to gain empowerment, employment, and full access to society.
People who have acquired
one or more disabilities due to disease, injury or congenital causes were
traditionally left with few choices. Today this is not the case.
Vocational rehabilitation empowers people to make informed choices, build
viable careers, and live more independently in the community.
