Texas Standards for Work Readiness Services
Work Readiness Services prepare participants to get, keep, and excel at a new job. Throughout the VR process, DARS provides and purchases services to support each consumer in achieving an individualized level of work readiness as it pertains to their disability, support needs, and specific employment goals. Services that can be purchased by Employment Service Providers focus on training related to disability issues, vocational adjustment, interpersonal skills training, and workforce readiness issues that interfere with their participation in obtaining or maintaining employment. Work Readiness services often benefit consumers who have not been employed for a long period of time.
