Vocational Rehabilitation

The Vocational Rehabilitation Program serves persons who are legally blind, and certain qualifying individuals with significant visual impairments. The program helps persons to become employed in ways that are appropriate to each individual’s strengths, resources, priorities, concerns, abilities, capabilities, interests, and informed choice.

Transition Services

The Commission works diligently to provide transition services for blind children and young adults, with the goal of enhancing the quantity and quality of their employment outcomes. The Commission has Memoranda of Understanding with the New Mexico School for the Blind and Visually Impaired, the Public Education Department, and the Department of Health, all of which are designed to enhance transition services. Reflecting the importance the Commission places on the education of all blind children, the Executive Director served on the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) State Advisory Panel. In addition, a Commission Deputy Director served on the State Transition Coordinating Council.
