Deaf & Hard of Hearing Services
The Office of Vocational Rehabilitation understands that people with hearing loss have different communication needs. Clear communication between the rehabilitation counselor and the person with hearing loss is the key to successful vocational rehabilitation services. Eligible individuals receive services to get a job, return to a job, keep a job, or get a better job.
The Office of Vocational Rehabilitation has staff trained to understand about the different problems people with hearing loss may have. Rehabilitation Counselors for the Deaf have sign language skills and serve persons who are deaf and use this type of communication. Communication Specialists are trained about devices and ways to serve individuals who are hard of hearing or late deafened. Rehabilitation Counselors for the Deaf and Communication Specialists are also skilled in serving people who have vision problems in addition to a hearing loss or deafness.
