Vocational Evaluation and Work Adjustment Association
represents the interests and needs of human service professionals who
work with people in support of their endeavors in training, employment,
and education to enhance successful attainment of career goals.
"VEWAA is about putting people to work, in the right job."
Finding that "right job" may sometimes require use of a piece of assistive technology, such as this standing wheelchair. It always will involve creative and interactive problem solving between rehabilitation professionals and individuals who are seeking employment.
VEWAA is comprised of rehabilitation and education professionals who provide services to individuals who often need assistance with vocational development and career decision making. Individual members provide services within a variety of settings such as community rehabilitation programs, state rehabilitation agencies, One-Stop Centers, schools and job training programs, and business/industry.
They may have titles of career assessment professional, vocational evaluator, work adjustment specialist, assistive technology practitioner, transition specialist, employment specialist or other titles of professionals that help persons with disabilities reach successful employment and realize personal goals.
