SPECIALIZED SERVICES

Specialized Services Division focuses on assisting persons who are blind, and visually impaired, and deaf and hard of hearing to gain competitive employment, increase economic opportunities, and to enhance independence and self-sufficiency. Specialized Services was established with the enactment of SB 105 in 2002, which identified the need for a more formalized and tailored approach to providing vocational rehabilitation, job training, and placement services to individuals with sensory disabilities.
