In general, the applicant must have a disa-
bility which interferes with the ability to pursue
a gainful occupation or function as a home-
maker, or which threatens his or her continued
employment. Both men and women are eligible.
The applicant must have a reasonable chance
of being able to engage in a suitable occupation
after necessary rehabilitation services are

By phone, letter, or personal visit, an appoint-
ment with a Rehabilitation Counselor can be
arranged at the nearest local office of your State
rehabilitation agency, or at some other location
convenient to you. After consultation, your
Rehabilitation Counselor will determine with
you what services may be needed in your par-
ticular case.
Many services are free. In all cases, those
services (such as medical examinations) which
are necessary to evaluate your problem, are free
of costs to the applicant. Individual counseling
and guidance services are also free, as well as
job placement assistance. You may be asked to
share in the cost of other services if you are able
to do so.

All vocational rehabilitation services are
available to blind people. In some States, there
is a separate agency for the blind (see "Where

to Apply"). An important additional opportunity
for employment of blind persons is offered by
the Rehabilitation Services Administration,
through its vending stand program for the
blind. About two-thirds of such stands-selling
candy, tobacco, confections, food items, and
sundries-are located in non-Federal buildings.
The remaining one-third of the vending stands
are in Federal buildings and grounds.

available through your
State agency

Counseling and Guidance

from the beginning are provided by a profes-
sionally trained counselor who works individ-
ually with each disabled person. He helps that
person discover his vocational interests and
aptitudes; discusses his problems; and works
out a plan for rehabilitation that is the most suit-
able for the individual.

Medical Examination
to learn the nature and extent of disability, to
help determine whether the client is eligible,
the need for additional medical services, and
the disabled person's work capacities.

Medical Help
to restore or improve the disabled person's
ability to do a job, by providing medical, surgi-
cal or hospital services to remove or reduce the

Physical Aids
where needed, include artificial limbs, braces,
hearing devices, eyeglasses and other aids.

Job Training
in a vocational school, an institution of higher
learning, or a rehabilitation facility.

m Expenses
may be paid, within certain limitations, while
the disabled person is being prepared for work,

or being helped to find a job. Can include board,
room, transportation, etc.

* Other Goods and Services
in a wide range can be provided if needed to i"
obtain the right job, including special equip-
ment and licenses.

* Job Placement
to assist in finding the right job.

* Follow-Up
by the Counselor to help the disabled person
adjust to his new occupation, and overcome
special problems.

In most States, there are two agencies-one
for people who are blind, the other for people
with any other disability. In the rest of the
States, a single rehabilitation agency accepts
persons with any disability, including blindness.
