This 4 ½-minute video literally illustrates how the VR process works for adults and high school students with disabilities. Produced by CCLC for Indiana Vocational Rehabilitation Services, the “quick draw” video demonstrates the VR process, discusses eligibility criteria, and explains how VR can help people with disabilities who want to gain skills, find a job after high school or college, start a new career, or even help get a new job if they’ve lost one because of their disability.
