Inaugural NDC Post Meeting Comment Forum

Vocational Rehabilitation Counselors

I strongly support and encourage the role and use of Vocational Rehabilitation Counselors and Vocational Experts in Social Security Administration, public and private disability claims in assessing an individual’s functional ability as it relates to a work environment. Vocational Rehabilitation Counselors are uniquely trained in understanding the medical, psychological, social, and vocational effects of disability. Therefore, understanding each unique individual’s personal profile, functional ability, and the world of work on a national, state and local level and how those factors intersect can best be addressed in an accurate, timely and cost effective manner by Vocational Rehabilitation Counselors and Vocational Experts. Thank you - Elizabeth Skyles, MS, CRC 2014 President of NASPPR (National Association of Service Providers in Private Rehabilitation)
