What is involved in a trial work experience?

(1) During a trial work experience, you perform in a realistic work situation with appropriate VR services and/or supports to address your rehabilitation needs, such as supported employment, on-the-job training, assistive technology or personal assistant services. A DVR counselor develops a written plan describing the VR services to be used in the trial work experience.
(2) You participate in one or more trial work experiences over a period of time necessary to produce clear and convincing evidence for a DVR counselor to determine:
(a) You can benefit from VR services and achieve an employment outcome and are eligible for VR services; or
(b) You cannot benefit from VR services and achieve an employment outcome because of the severity of your disability and you are ineligible for VR services.
(3) Trial work experiences occur in the most integrated setting possible, based on your informed choice and rehabilitation needs.
