This is one of two documents of A Lifetime of Learning and Earning: A Transition Series for Families of Deaf and Hard of Hearing Students. 

The purpose of the series is to provide families with important information about Vocational Rehabilitation, employment, and post-secondary education.  With this knowledge, families can actively support and guide their child’s transition planning for life after high school.  The series is also a useful resource for transition and guidance counselors, Vocational Rehabilitation counselors, and other educators who are involved in student transition. 

This publication for parents of students seeking Vocational Rehabilitation services addresses aspects of vocational rehabilitation, including eligibility requirements, application process, career planning, services provided, financial obligation, and appeal process.
