Office of Vocational and Educational Services for Individuals with Disabilities: Annual Report.
New York State Education Dept., Albany.
The mission of New York's Office of Vocational and Educational Services for Individuals with Disabilities (VESID) is to provide educational, vocational, and counseling services to people whose disabilities impose barriers to employment; to increase the access of all people with disabilities to the full range of services offered within the State Education Department and other agencies; and to coordinate lifelong educational services to persons with disabilities. This annual report describes the service philosophy, the services provided and coordinated by vocational rehabilitation counselors, management principles, priorities and goals, and accomplishments. Accomplishments focus on such areas as improving access to services, interagency coordination, supported employment, independent living, and outreach to underserved populations. A section called "Profile of the People We Served" provides a statistical overview of people who received VESID services and the outcomes of such services. Appendices outline the organizational structure of the Office and list independent living centers. (JDD)
