Vocational Rehab Statement

Vocational Rehabilitation (VR) is a federal-state program that works with people who have physical or mental disabilities to prepare for, gain or retain employment. VR is committed to helping people with disabilities find meaningful careers.

The Division of Vocational Rehabilitation (DVR) and the Bureau of Exceptional Education and Student Services (BEESS) are committed to ensuring the success of Florida's Comprehensive Transition and Postsecondary Programs for Students with Intellectual Disabilities (TPSID). DVR and BEESS sought guidance from Lynnae Ruttledge, Rehabilitation Services Administration (RSA) Commissioner, and Alexa Posney, Assistant Secretary for Special Education Rehabilitative Services, regarding DVR's ability to expend funds in support of Florida's TPSID programs. On march 21, 2011, DVR and BEESS received written confirmation from the Commissioner that DVR is able to expend funds for Florida's TPSID programs while remaining in compliance with the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended, and regulations at 34 CRF 361.48.
