provides services under the Client Assistance Program (CAP), serving as a vital link between the Oklahoma Department of Oklahoma Rehabilitation Services (OKDRS) and the disability community. CAP provides advocacy to persons with disabilities who are seeking or receiving vocational rehabilitation (VR) services from DRS, as well as individuals who are receiving services from independent living centers or other Rehabilitation Act funded programs such as Tribal VR and Higher Education.
CAP is an independent advocate for clients and client applicants.
CAP was established to improve communication and help resolve issues between clients and vocational rehabilitation/DRS staff and other Rehabilitation Act funded program staff.
