Voc Rehab-successMr. T.H. was referred for VR services by his attorney in January 2011. He was injured while working as a Lineman for a utility company and lost his dominant right arm due to the injury. After seven grueling surgeries over a period of two years, Mr. T.H learned to type, write, and manage all of his activities of daily living with his left hand and the assistance of an advanced prosthetic arm. Through the vocational exploration process, he was able to identify Resource Planner and Trouble Dispatcher as possible return to work options with his Employer and School Counselor as an alternate job goal should return options not be available.
