WAC 388-891A-0526

May DVR determine that I am ineligible for VR services without additional assessment of the severity of my disability?

If a DVR counselor cannot presume that you are eligible for VR services or that VR services will enable you to benefit by achieving an employment outcome because of the severity of your disability, DVR requires a trial work experience to determine eligibility. To develop the trial work experience, DVR will:
(1) Conduct an exploration of your abilities, capabilities, and capacity to perform in realistic work situations. This exploration must include an assessment of existing information to the maximum extent possible;
(2) Develop a trial work plan to assess your abilities, capabilities, and capacity to perform in competitive integrated work situations through the use of trial work experiences; and
(3) Make a determination for eligibility based on the information gathered from trial work experience(s).
