To be eligible for assistance, you will need to provide proper documentation which states your disability. This documentation may include:
A copy of an inactive I.E.P. (previous Special Education student), must be exited out of high school program
A letter or medical report from a physician, psychologist or any qualified medical professional
Workers Compensation records
Record of a veteran's service-related disability
Social Security Disability records
All accommodations must be clearly identified, directly correlated to the disability, and documented by a medical professional who is qualified to make the diagnosis. Once you have qualified and registered through the DSS Office, we will assist you with registration and coordination of services and accommodations throughout your training. We will continue to provide assistance and support throughout your educational path.
Sign Language Interpreters
Enlargements and Recorded Course Materials
If you need financial assistance with the costs of training, and plan to enter into employment following the completion of your training, you may qualify for services and support through the Department of Rehabilitation and/or work source center. These agencies offer free services to assist adults who have disabilities to prepare for and secure employment. Let the DSS Advisor know that you are interested in applying for these services.
