Abstract

Each year the US government provides millions of dollars in direct financial aid and other incentive to train rehabilitation counselor to work in state vocational rehabilitation (VR)agencies. However, only about 30% of the graduate receiving this specially designated financial aid become employed by these agencies. A consortium of university based rehabilitation training programs including those located at Michigan State University, Wayne State University, Western Michigan University and Northern Illinois University are using video conferencing tools and developing and testing online training resources to coordinate and promote intern education and supervision within state vocational agencies. This presentation will discuss the results of using both video conferencing and online learning modules to increase the percentage of students recruited for state VR agency employment.
