Nebraska VR is committed to reaching all Nebraska residents who experience disabilities and seeks opportunities to improve services. To that end, Nebraska VR adopted the use of Video Remote Interpreting (VRI) from Deaf Services Unlimited and the Language Line. The convenient on demand services via an iPad, tablet, laptop, or other computer addresses the need for readily available interpreters, particularly for drop in clients. As a state government early adopter, Nebraska VR can provide a better client experience to individuals who are deaf or hard of hearing.
The Pathway to Employment Video Series is designed to de-mystify the many services provided to clients and businesses while highlighting the innovation that is the culture of Nebraska VR. While certainly each story is either one of progress towards an employment goal or a client's employment goal success, they are also stories about the important role played by staff members, businesses, ATP, Easter Seals, Project SEARCH, and others.
