Do I qualify?
At ComputerMinds.Com we are often asked “what are the standards to qualify?” We have learned through experience the best answer is: DARS looks at each person individually and it is best to not assume your ability for qualification. If you have a mental or physical injury or disability, that is Dr. Diagnosed, and could affect your job or your employment you should speak with a counselor and let the counselors determine your eligibility.
How do I apply?
All you have to do is call your local DARS office and ask to setup an appointment with a Vocational Rehabilitation Counselor. For any additional guidance or questions, please call our office at (817) 858-9670 or reach out to us through our contact form.
