You and your counselor will sign the IPE and you will get a copy. Your plan can be changed if you need more help in reaching your work goal.What kind of services can I expect?
Services might include vocational training, counseling, prosthetics,assistive technology, assessment, advanced education, training, hearing aids, transportation, interpreter services for people with hearing impairments, and help in finding a job. You probably won't need all of these services. You will only get those services that will help you reach your goal.
After I reach my work goal, then what?When you are working and things appear to be going well, you and your counselor may decide to close your case. You are an important part of the work force and can be proud of what you have done. If problems occur after closing your case let your counselor know.

There may be times when you don't understand or agree with the decisions made about your case. Perhaps you have a concern about the types of services you are getting.Or, maybe you think you should be able to get services when you've been told that you can't. At times like these, the best thing to do is talk with your IVRS counselor about your concerns. Often, things are easily cleared up.
