Louisiana Rehabilitation Council (LRC): Listen to the concerns of those with disability issues Review analyze, and evaluate the state rehabilitation program. Collaborate with other state agencies, organizations, and consumer groups.
The Louisiana Rehabilitation Council was established in compliance with federal regulations governing the Rehabilitation Act (P.L. 102-569). The LRC works with Louisiana Rehabilitation Services (LRS) to ensure the involvement of individuals with disabilities in the development and delivery of vocational rehabilitation services to Louisianans with disabilities.
The LRC consults with and advises LRS on the performance of its responsibilities under Title I of the Rehabilitation Act, particularly in the areas related to eligibility, extent, and scope of services provided. The Council also conducts a review and analysis of the effectiveness of, and consumer satisfaction with, rehabilitation services. An annual report is prepared to reflect the Council’s work and the Council’s perception of the status of the rehabilitation program in Louisiana.
Recommendations for appointment by the Governor to the LRC are obtained from representatives of a broad range of individuals, including persons with disabilities; service providers, disability advocates; and representatives from business, industry, and labor. A majority of the membership of LRC must be individuals with disabilities.
If you would like to be considered for membership on the Council or would like more information about the LRC, you can contact Kandy Baker 1-800-737-2958 or 225-219-2225. Her email address is firstname.lastname@example.org
The mission of VEWAA remains to improve and advance the fields of vocational evaluation and work readiness and is committed to representing the needs of all professionals who provide related services.
