DRO helps Vocational Rehabilitation client communicate with VR Counselor about service dog

A person who has autism was receiving educational training support from Vocational Rehabilitation so that she could stay employed at her current job. VR was also providing training for her service dog. As they negotiated her employment plan, they had miscommunication about whether the client or OVRS owned her dog if the client did not complete the plan. The possibility of losing her service dog caused the client a great deal of anxiety. DRO’s Client Assistance Program attorney facilitated communication between the client and her vocational rehabilitation counselor, and ensured that both parties understood that the client owned her dog regardless of what happened with her VR plan.
