DVR Order of Selection
Order of Selection (OOS) is the resource management tool (waiting list) that is required by federal law for all DVR state agencies. In other words, DVR cannot use a first come, first serve queue. It must use a waiting list in which people with the most severe disabilities are served first.
The reason the federal law funds DVR at 78% is to insure that persons with severe disabilities, who receive social security benefits, are given access to the more costly employment services and supports they need to obtain, retain, and advance in employment.
Categories of Severity
Category 1 Most Significant (Severe)
Category 2 Significant (Severe)
Category 3 Not Significant (Not Severe)
The significant limitations are divided into these seven functional areas:
Note that the functional areas do not use medical labels or disabilities. There is an individual determination on how the disability interferes with the skills needed in all work environments. Thus, people with the same diagnosis or disability label may be in different categories if their limitations are milder or more severe than their peers.
