Overview
  

The Division of Rehabilitation Services (DORS) has programs and services that help people with physical and mental disabilities go to work, become self-sufficient and stay independent in their homes and communities.

In Focus
Vocational Rehabilitation
Learn more about how DORS supports individuals with disabilities in the MSRC DORS 2009 Annual Report.

DORS operates two programs:

1. The public vocational rehabilitation program provides direct, personalized services such as career assessment, vocational training, assistive technologies and job placement.

In the Office of Field Services, rehabilitation counselors located in over 20 offices around the state assist eligible individuals with disabilities to identify their career and independent living goals and work with them to reach those goals.

DORS offers specialized programs for people who are blind/visually impaired through the Office for Blindness and Vision Services. DORS also operates the Workforce & Technology Center (WTC), a comprehensive rehabilitation facility.


2. The Maryland Disability Determination Services (DDS) employs disability examiners, staff physicians, psychologists and other support staff who determine the eligibility of Maryland applicants for Social Security Administration's (SSA) two disability programs.
