This is done through information and technical assistance, disability rights training, working with the Michigan Business Leaders Network on employment for people with disabilities, coordinating the Michigan Youth Leadership Forum and conducting disability awareness and sensitivity training.  The Division on Deaf and Hard of Hearing deals with issues involving Michigan citizens who are deaf or hard of hearing. Our Mission is to provide statewide leadership to empower and integrate people with disabilities into all aspects of society.
