Vocational rehabilitation is a comprehensive process of assessing an individual’s education, work history, strengths and weaknesses, and interests and facilitating return to work given the labor market and the person’s situation. This may include vocational counseling, interest and aptitude testing, exploration of the labor market and training options, and developing a plan for financial support while the goals are being pursued.
