Before COVID-19 CAP was about to cover all 10 district meeting in Mississippi. There are 10 districts in Mississippi and they each have a monthly meeting. CAP is able to speak at these meetings. VR goes over examples and case situations for help maintain and improve knowledge for the counselors. CAP wasn't able to speak in person this year. CAP did 6 meeting via TEAMS. CAP went over cases and possible outcomes to help the counselors better understand the cases.
C. Agency Outreach
While CAP is on the Special Education Advisory Panel (SEAP) we did observe schools via the internet because wasn't able to outreach in person because of COVID-19 restrictions. MSCAP was working from home for so long. MSCAP does hope to improve that next year and get to visit schools where students in underserved areas can be reached.

Part VI. Case Examples
Case Examples
MSCAP was able to advocate for client dealing with the hospital while being a client of the states VR. Client was paralyzed and had a job he could still do but once he was released from the hospital, he wasn't able to get to work because he couldn't drive. He's VR counselor told him they would buy hand controls once he passed the driving test with the hand controls. Problem was getting close to someone or in the same car. CAP was able to call the local hospital and talk to people CAP knows personally and they were able to get this person in to do the driving with hand controls. That individual passed the driving test after he was able to complete the training with hand controls. He was so excited because he didn't have to rely on family to get him to and from work. VR purchased the client hand controls and made him more independent.
