What we do
The Oklahoma Department of Rehabilitation
Services (DRS) expands opportunities for employment,
independent life and economic self-sufficiency by helping
Oklahomans with disabilities bridge barriers to success in
the workplace, school and at home.

DRS is comprised of five program divisions, Vocational Rehabilitation, Visual Services, Disability Determination, Oklahoma School for the Blind and Oklahoma School for the Deaf. These divisions operate dozens of programs that help Oklahomans lead more independent and productive lives.
- Division of Vocational Rehabilitation (DVR): Employment services for people with any disability, except blindness or diabetes.
- Division of Visual Services (DVS): Employment and independent living services for people who are blind, visually impaired or have diabetes.
- Disability Determination Division: Determines medical eligibility for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI).
- Oklahoma School for the Deaf: Educational programs for children who are deaf or hard of hearing.
- Oklahoma School for the Blind: Educational programs for children who are blind or visually impaired.
DRS also relies on Support Services to handle administrative functions.

DRS developed this new look for our Web site. Not only did we want to bring a fresh and modern look in keeping with the times, we wanted to take our site to the next level in terms of accessibility. This Web site proves that accessible doesn't have to be ugly or outdated. DRS' Web Transformers, a group of users who have disabilities or work with those who do, have reviewed this new site for accessibility issues and their comments or concerns have been incorporated to improve our client's online experience. Not only have we followed the Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act, we have tested each page with Web Aim's WAVE, an evaluation tool, visual examination of code and code validation tools. If you have any questions or concerns please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call the Public Information Office at 405.951.3402.
