Deaf and Hard of Hearing
We provide vocational rehabilitation services, including advanced communication technology and career counseling, for persons who are Deaf or Hard of Hearing.
Our Vocational Rehabilitation Counselors who are fluent in American Sign Language are in offices throughout Colorado. Their knowledge of deafness and ability to facilitate effective, culturally-sensitive communication is vital to the collaborative and highly interactive vocational rehabilitation process.
Additionally, Rehabilitation Counselors for the Hard of Hearing are located in several offices throughout the State. Their knowledge of hearing loss and its impact on work and relationships supports the needs of clients who are hard of hearing.
Individuals who are deaf or hard of hearing may contact any Division of Vocational Rehabilitation office for assistance. Individuals who are Deaf/Blind are encouraged to request consultation from the Denver office.
To get started, contact a local Division of Vocational Rehabilitation Office.
