These services are provided by professionals who are trained in the unique communication issues, technology and culture of this population.
Any deaf, hard of hearing, late-deafened, or deaf-blind individual who has a substantial barrier to employment and needs assistance in preparing for a job, getting a job, and/or keeping a job is eligible for services.
Rehabilitation counselors for the deaf and hard of hearing (RCDs) provide a wide range of vocational rehabilitation services to persons who are deaf, hard of hearing or late deafened.
