Disabilities and Employment

October is National Disability Employment Awareness Month.  Colorado has the Division of Vocational Rehabilitation, a division of the Colorado Dept. of Human Services, which works to help persons with disabilities on their path to — or back to — employment.  On the DVR’s website you can find a list of providers; information on the rehabilitation process; links to information on the associated Boards, including the Statewide Independent Living Council and the State Rehabilitation Council; reports; and some great success stories of Coloradans with disabilities who have found successful employment.  In our library you can find the Annual Reports of the DVR back to 2007.  Also, be sure and search our web catalog for more publications on employment for persons with disabilities.
