Voc Rehab


Christopher

Question

My counselor has me on extended evaluation..Every month I maintain communication with her until the 1st semester ends and the grades are in.

Then we take from there?

Any feedback?

A certain GPA must be maintained and Voc Rehab covers any remedial help also.

Chris:

It really is for your benefit. If you need some help she can get it for you. Remember that you can't change anything without talking to her first. I think as long as you are passing not to much to worry about.

They are supposed to pay for books and the stuff you need to make a success of your studies you also may be able to score a laptop computer if it is needed to help you in your studies.

Good Luck

After looking over the paperwork I signed and recived copies of...apparently the rehabilitation plan is to determine my feasiblity to participate in further vocational panning and an ultimate job objective? To improve my rehabilitation potential for training and eventual training for employment? Referral back to counseling no later than the end of the semester or as soon as feasibility can be determined?

Here I thought I was approved and they got me on a 1 semester trial basis..I may be paranoid but do the Voc Rehab people talk to the people working my claims and appeals? And if so how does this relate to my laims?

Don't worry so much as long as you work hard, go to class, turn in your assignments and study for tests you should be in good shape. Since you are in Texas there is plenty of help if Voc Rehab bails on you.

Really, try not to get upset this is all pretty standard stuff. It will pay, and they will assist you if they think you need it by paying for tutoring etc. A great case manager touches base monthly (hopefully by phone) and physically at least once a semester....

Just get used to it, and once you do the program is fairly straightforeward. Expect a FEW bumpb... especially with the books... but it will get fixed and paid for. If you do have any special needs, and these may be anything from a laptop to an advanced calculator (OMG the price on a top of the line casio is insane I know I have one)... to assistive equipment to help your studying, or managing life on campus... these vary wildly but, for example a bright lighted magnifyer glass that moves in 3 demensions for a vet with eye injury.... or a magnifying plate with lightin capability... etc.

Good point, but I have been very sick for about 3 months now and only spend a few hours each week online. I pop in when I am able. While I realize this is not "ideal", it's the best I can manage now. Sorry.

    Have Questions? Get Answers.

    Tips on posting on the forums.

    1. Post a clear title like ‘Need help preparing PTSD claim’ or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery instead of ‘I have a question.
       
    2. Knowledgeable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title.
      I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on.
       
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one massive, rambling introduction or story.
       
      Again – You want to make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph, there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.
     
    Leading too:

    exclamation-point.pngPost straightforward questions and then post background information.
     
    Examples:
     
    • Question A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • Adding Background information in your post will help members understand what information you are looking for so they can assist you in finding it.
    Rephrase the question: I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
     
    • Question B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • See how the details below give us a better understanding of what you’re claiming.
    Rephrase the question: I was involved in a traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?
     
    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial of your claim?”

    You’ve just been rated 100% disabled by the Veterans Affairs. After the excitement of finally having the rating you deserve wears off, you start asking questions. One of the first questions that you might ask is this: It’s a legitimate question – rare is the Veteran that finds themselves sitting on the couch eating bon-bons … Continue reading
