DVR
What is DVR?
    The Wisconsin Division of Vocational Rehabilitation (DVR) is a federal/state program that helps people with disabilities obtain, maintain, or improve employment. You may be able to receive assistance from DVR if you have a physical or mental disability that makes it hard for you to get or keep a job.
What are some of the services DVR provides?
    • Requesting medical/educational records
    • Scheduling medical, psychological, or vocational evaluations
    • Counseling in career goal-setting
    • Skill training or education
    • Job-seeking training and job placement counseling
    • Work adjustment or job coaching services
    • Assistance with job-site modifications
What will DVR services cost?
    Evaluation, counseling, job placement, and follow-up assistance are all free. You may be required to pay other costs depending on your financial situation.
How do I apply for DVR services?
    Contact the DVR location listed below that is closest to you. When you call, ask for an application packet and an appointment to meet with a counselor. For your appointment, be sure to bring:
    • a valid picture id (drivers license or state id),
    • school records,
    • any medical records you already have
    • doctor release forms.

    Also, be ready to talk about your functional limitations. These include difficulties in getting around, reading or understanding, self care, getting along with others, doctor’s restrictions, etc.
