Client success story – L.T.H.

Print

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.

The client returned to work with his employer in a temporary “Construction Coordinator” position via the company’s return to work program on 4/17/2012. As of 11/5/2012, he has reported that he was offered a permanent position as a Resource Planner with the company. The client is now in the follow-up phase of VR and, once he has successfully completed 60 days within his current permanent position, his VR case will close as a successful placement. He has reported that he thoroughly enjoys his work and that his transferable skills as a field person (Lineman) have helped him adapt to the Resource Planner position successfully. Mr. T.H.’s persistence and hard work at recovery and adapting to his disability, along with VR’s guidance in maintaining a smooth transition back to his employer in an alternate position has contributed to his success and return to work.
