Margaret Said:

How can I find a job if employers refuse to hire me because of my Tourette's, & I have BA degree in Spanish?

We Answered:

Your V R counselor is in breach of their role, and I would report them, for refusal of assistance and degrading you by making comments about you. No counselor/care worker etc should ever make any comments about a client, no matter how true it maybe.

Document conversations with this person, including dates, times etc, as this will help you in your complaint against them. Also if they have asked you to do something, do it and show evidence of having done it, this way the VR counselor can't say your not compliant, and not willing to help yourself.

Its my understanding that a VR counselor is supposed to do a care plan, which sets out goals & aims, to assist you to find employment, even on job training, liaising with prospective employers and monitors client progress, finding & applying for funding to cover the cost of adaptive technology or equipment if needed in a place of employment, they should also help in making sure your C.V or Resume is current, even making sure you know how to write your letter of application.

Do you have a copy of the personal care plan, they should have done this with you, these are designed to help you achieve your goals and aims, as well as track or change goals when and where needed. If so read it and see what has or has not been achieved, including the date it was first done, if it is more than 6 months old, then take it back in to be updated. If one has not been done, then you could ask if one is supposed to be done, which can be further proof this person is not doing their job.

I am not sure when you mention your disability, but never in your letter of application or C.V/Resume, if you make it to an interview you can mention it then, but by law your not obliged too, but Tourettes can be a bit hard to hide, so I would actually take a information pack about Tourettes and hand it to them, so the prospective employer can read it, to learn and understand what Tourettes is.

I am not sure why some people think people with Tourettes are not intelligent, as this is far from true, also it is not something that can be controlled or overcome, as inferred by Donut Tim. In fact trying to hold back the tics etc can make the tics worse.

I am a big believer that education is the key, even if you don't get the job, you have at lest educated them (that is if they taken the time to read it), I have found most do.

I have a friend with simple tourettes, where the signs and symptoms are milder than complex tourettes. I assume yours is complex.

I wish your good luck in finding a job, and paying off your student loan.

Albert Said:

Why don't state bureau's of Vocational Rehabilitation try to get jobs with the state. There are a lot of jobs?

We Answered:

It depends on both the qualifications of the person and the needs of the hiring office.

People don't just 'give' us jobs because we have a disability. We have to be capable of successfully doing them, just like people without disabilities, irrespective if we obtain a workplace accommodation.

This also applies to government agencies because we are then salaried through public funds. The hiring agency wants to justify that all of it's employees are highly qualified and competent for the positions which we were hired for--and not just filling space.

We have to be able to function in the workplace we are applying for.

Calvin Said:

Should I make a grievance against my Vocational Rehabilitation counselor?

We Answered:

This woman has once again trampled all over you. I told you once before to file a grievance on her. She is rude and not doing her job correctly. You need another counselor and she needs to find a job where she can treat people as rudely as she pleases.
She is not supposed to close your case without sending you a formal letter via the Post Office. Cell Phones are not considered a formal form of connection. She is aware that you are on a prepaid plan and was aware that you were out of minutes. You've had one too many ups and downs with this particular counselor. She constantly ignores your calls and totally ignores your diseases and the complications of your diseases.
You need to go ABOVE her and file a complaint. This is not your first post about your distrust and unhappiness with her. Just from your posts I can tell she is unfair and rude. File a FORMAL complaint against her a follow through with it. Do it immediately, do not put it off. They are required to act on it immediately. Refuse anymore help from her and request the help from another counselor because of her inept ability to help you and her rudeness.
She is stopping you from moving forward. File a complaint ASAP. Good luck!!!
Peace & Love :)

Ted Said:

Has a state vocational rehabilitation counselor ever determined somebody is too mentally ill to work?

We Answered:

only if they can get in on there own

Ramon Said:

I am 37 and have a history of depression and employment problems. How can I get employed. But not fast food?

We Answered:

Have the Vocational Rehab counselor send you for retraining in a field that most interests you. Then change your resume from chronological order and just say 5 years work history in _____. . .you did not say if the job hopping was due to the depression or if you were fired as a result of depression. These things are like dominos. . . One follows the other. Hard to know which came first the chicken or the egg. You must delve inside and figure out why you job hopped. Is it hard to work with others, or you did not like your work, or mentally you could just not function. Learning these things about ourself will help you hone in on being successfull in you next job. For example: If it is others you don't like being around choose a field or work where you can work alone. All that advice is only if you are stable with the depression. If the depression is not stable then you set yourself up for failure and more depression just like a boomerang. Employment services don't normally care much but you do need a good supportive voc rehab worker. If you are not getting the help there ask for a new one.

Daisy Said:

Can someone tell me why funding was cut for Vocational Rehabilitation in Arizona?(Please read details)?

We Answered:

Because the state legislators acted "Stupidly"
It's stupid to cut funding from a program that would help the disabled be more self sufficient. It will cost tax payers more money in the long run to keep paying them SSI and SSDI and giving them Food Stamps and TANF.

Discuss It!

How does one file a formal complaint a VRC? Mine did not respond to voice mail or email and has now threatened me with harassment due to the number of emails I have sent trying to get a response or answers. Never has she done any of the actions that are listed on the website as being the function of a VRC. The only time she ever responds to anything is to threaten me with charges of some type. How/who do I file a complaint with?

Vocational Rehabilitation Counselor is an interesting course to study and it seems that only a few institutions offer it. I think it is a good step taken by you to discuss the options available. That makes it an interesting spot for the seekers.
