The Council involves itself in various surveys and needs assessments. Some of these efforts are accomplished independently, and others collaboratively with IDVR. Some Council interests parallel Vocational Rehabilitation’s program evaluation activities, so joint research efforts are conducted. Employer attitudes, client satisfaction and staff perceptions of IDVR are a few of the inquiries that have been conducted.
