The Disabled Students' Residence Program
The Disabled Students' Residence Program (DSRP) provides independent living skills training for Department of Rehabilitation (DOR) consumers/students. DSRP services serve any DOR consumer/UC Berkeley student who would benefit from independent living skills training while attending school at UC Berkeley. Specific program services are designed for DOR consumers attending UC Berkeley with severe physical disabilities, Autism Spectrum Disorders and other disabilities. DOR consumers do not need to live on campus to participate in the DSRP services (unless they require intensive personal care training). The services have been designed to include a Phase I and Phase II program with the ultimate goal of competitive community employment after graduation. There are about 8 DSRP staff. Their hours vary with need as students become more independent throughout the year.
