Disability Support Services (DSS)

WELCOME!

The DSS (Disability Support Services) Office at WVOC is dedicated to providing equal access and assistance for adult students with verifiable disabilities. All support services are individualized and may include:

ELIGIBILITY

To be eligible for assistance, your disability must be verifiable. This means you will need to provide documentation that states your disability. Documentation may include: 
  • Medical diagnosis information or a letter from your physician, psychologist, agency counselor, or qualified medical professional
  • Inactive I.E.P. (for previous Special Education students) or 504 plan
  • Workers' Compensation records
  • Record of Military Veteran service-related disability
Please note that all accommodations must be:
  • Clearly identified
  • Directly correlated to your disability
  • Documented by a qualified professional
After you have verified your disability and submitted your completed paperwork to our DSS Office, you will receive assistance and coordination of services throughout your education at WVOC.

While these are great places to get assistance, you never need a referral to seek support from us! All students who feel they may need support and/or accommodations are invited to visit us. And, of course, all your disability-related information is 100% confidential.
