Students with Disabilities

The New Jersey Division of Vocational Rehabilitation Services (DVRS) assists students with disabilities who will need services to prepare for, get, and keep a job. Our ultimate goal is to create a smooth transition from school to work so that upon graduation, a student is prepared to begin work or post-secondary training that leads to employment.
 
 

Steps in the DVRS Process

  3. Work-based learning experiences, internships, and apprenticeships

These sevices are available to all students with disabilities, including students who are home-schooled.
