2020-57: TAFDC: Temporary Telework Procedures- Learning Disability Assessments


DTA is committed to ensuring that clients have equal opportunity to successfully participate in employment and training programs. To that end, a series of questions was developed to screen TAFDC clients for a potential learning disability.

Based on the answers, BEACON will note if it appears that the client may have a learning disability and offer the opportunity for a free assessment by a doctor through the University of Massachusetts Medical School’s Disability Evaluation Services (DES). The assessment will help DTA and any education, training, or job search program ensure that any needed accommodations can be made.

With operations currently fully remote, DTA has worked with DES to appoint a representative when completing the Learning Disability referral process.
