The Deaf-Blind population has been a recognized DORS priority for the past several years. Although the population is relatively small, Deaf-Blind consumers need specialized supports in order to integrate into society and find competitive placement in a career path of their choice.
DORS is committed to expanding existing services for the general population to include Deaf-Blind consumers. Some of these specialized services include receiving braille training from a Deaf-Blind vendor, consumers work with O&M instructors who specialize in working the Deaf-Blind, and receiving Job Coaching from vendors who have been trained to work with Deaf-Blind consumers.
DORS honors communication preferences for their consumers. If you prefer to use ASL to communicate we have Rehabilitation Counselors for the Deaf who will work with you.
