DORS is particularly interested in enhancing employment services for individuals who are blind or vision-impaired, deaf, deaf-blind, and/or people with limited English proficiency. We are also interested in encouraging CRPs to expand to or become established in the less populated areas of Maryland.
For a list of the CRPs that DORS has approved, see the CRP Directory.
All other services and goods a DORS consumer may need to become successfully employed are provided by a network of private practitioners, organizations and companies. These range from psychologists, to AT specialists, to speech pathologists, to benefits counselors, to building contractors, to vehicle modifications specialists, to stores like Sears and Walmart.
