Vocational Rehabilitation (VR) Services for Those With Developmental Disabilities: Frequently Asked Questions

Both the Division of Developmental Disabilities (DDD) and the Division of Vocational Rehabilitation Services (DVRS) provide services for those persons with developmental disabilities who are seeking employment. Each agency can provide services, but generally a person must first apply for employment services through DVRS, before seeking services from DDD.

The services provided by DVRS are comprehensive and intended to help those people with disabilities obtain competitive, integrated employment. DVRS can provide trial work experiences, evaluations, restorative services, employment supports and other services to ensure that persons with disabilities can reach their employment goals.

If a person is ineligible for services from DVRS or if specific DVRS services are unavailable, a person with developmental disabilities may seek employment services from DDD.  Your support coordinator can explain and plan for services, including career planning, prevocational training, as well as supported employment and transportation. The services are like those provided by DVRS to support entry for competitive, integrated employment. In both instances, these agencies can provide essential services and supports that can permit those with developmental disabilities to obtain gainful and meaningful employment opportunities.
