Vocational and Educational Services for Individuals with Disabilities (VESID) offers access to a full range of services that may be needed by persons with disabilities through their lives. Through its administration of vocational rehabilitation and independent living programs, VESID coordinates policy and services relating to:
- Transition services or students with disabilities from school to adult services;
- Vocational rehabilitation services for individuals with disabilities, ages 16 and older;
- Independent living services for people with disabilities of all ages; and
- Employer Services for hiring a qualified diverse workforce.
The seeds of adult success are sown during the school years. The system established by the Board of Regents to administer education and vocational services for people with disabilities fosters this and has evolved into a national model, designed to focus on our customers and produce results.
