VESID, an office of the New York State Education Department, each year offers thousands of New Yorkers who have a disability, an opportunity to become independent through education, training and employment. We provide vocational rehabilitation services to eligible individuals to prepare them for suitable jobs. These jobs might be in the competitive work force, in self-owned businesses, in supported employment on employer sites, or in sheltered workshops. We can also help people with disabilities who are having difficulty keeping their jobs. VESID can also help you live as independently as possible by referring you to a local Independent Living Center.
