Deaf and Hard of Hearing Services

Through the Division of Vocational Rehabilitation Services (DVRS), individuals who are deaf or hard of hearing receive specialized career services designed to help them prepare for, obtain, and maintain employment. Our Deaf Language Specialists (DLS), also known as Rehabilitation Counselors for the Deaf, provide direct vocational counseling to eligible DVRS consumers whose primary language is American Sign Language (ASL). Our counselors are also able to meet the communication needs of those with hearing loss who do not sign.
