We’ve created a directory of resources for individuals with LD who are looking for job and workplace resources.

Below are links to each state’s labor commission’s disability employment  services. These resources can include:

  • Job matching and placement services for individuals with disabilities
  • Services to assist with employment
  • Information about the eligibility process for filing a disability claim
  • Postsecondary education support services
  • Assistive technology
  • The eligibility process for social security benefits
  • Vocational adjustment training
  • And more!

Resources available can vary from state to state. Some states have resources for individuals with disabilities who are looking for employment under their employment division website, health and human services division website, or may have another website entirely dedicated to individuals with disabilities. Most likely, resources on employment for individuals with disabilities can be found under the ‘Vocational Rehabilitation’ category.
