Part VI. Case Examples
Case Examples
Interesting CAP Cases FY 2018 <p><p>Case 1: A client contacted CAP claiming that a VR counselor advised the Program Job Coach that her dog was not recognized as a service animal. During a teleconference with the District Administrator (DA) for the VR agency and CAP, the client specified that she needed a written resolution statement from the VR agency. DA assured a resolution statement would be provided to the client and agreed to the client's request for case transfer to another VR office. The client's CAP case was eventually successfully closed in April 2018 per client request. <p><p>Case 2: A client contacted CAP regarding provisions of VR services. CAP A took the CAP case in an effort to resolve various client issues, including receiving transportation reimbursement and difficulty working with a job placement vendor. Eventually, client began having problems with his mobile home park which made it impossible for him to be an active participant in VR services. CAP waited a substantial period of time to see if this circumstance would change. Unfortunately, the client&rsquo;s case was closed due to client's inability to resolve housing and transportation issues. <p><p>
