GREATER HOLLYWOOD CHAMBER OF COMMERCE

Disability Programs and Training (D.P.T.) is committed to providing services, programs, and training resources for individuals of all ages who need assistance in gaining full independence regardless of disability.

 

Independent Living Skills
We teach the skills necessary to thrive with minimal assistance, live independently, connect with the resources needed to maintain gainful employments which lead to individual income, and be included  in the community with other peers.

 

We aim to educate our community using different teaching techniques and settings:
– Group Setting
– One – on – One
– Workshops
– Assistive Technology

 

 

The programs, services and training for these groups include teaching of resources and training necessary to improve employ-ability skills. Individuals participate in workshops to help enhance on resume writing, career exploration, and interviewing skills. Assistance will be provided for those receiving Social Security Administration (SSA), and needing to sign up for the Ticket to Work Program, and other related benefits counseling.
 

Lobby on behalf of the community or individuals to obtain public services locally, through the state and nationally and those that may have a specific need, and intervene in crisis related situations, while teaching the tools necessary to be your own best self-advocate in different areas of life. It all starts with knowing your rights by educating the community on the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), the Rehabilitation Act, Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), and more.
