Eligibility & Order of Selection Unit

Nationwide, State Vocational Rehabilitation programs and staff have up to 60 days to determine an individual's eligibility for DVR services. In 2016, a pilot project on eligibility determination was expanded statewide to process the over 10,000 applications received annually.  SVRI has piloted this project on behalf of the federal-state Vocational Rehabilitation program in Wisconsin.  The model encompasses a centralized administrative process for determining eligibility, based on integrating rapid engagement strategies and administrative efficiencies for processing Vocational Rehabilitation program applications.

Assistive Technology

Assistive technology is often used to describe products or systems that support and assist individuals with disabilities, restricted mobility, or other impairments who often have difficulty performing activities of daily living independently or with assistance. Our services can include evaluation, design, customization, modification, maintenance, repair, training, technical assistance, and identification of funding options.
