A Disability Specialist is accountable for reviewing the patient’s disability documents to determine eligibility, reviewing and maintaining current cases, helping people understand their disabilities, providing support and assisting in problem-solving. A professional Disability Specialist Resume lists additional responsibilities such as – delivering formal training to staff, determining the eligibility for assistance, assessing and approving claims, answering client’s questions, evaluating patients to determine the service that is needed by them, and evaluating the patients periodically to determine for changes if any.

The resume should demonstrate these skills – knowledge of federal, state and local laws; experience working with disabled people, familiarity with technical, psychological and medical terminologies; and immense communication skills. To meet the qualification criteria, job applicants should have a bachelor’s degree in psychology, social work counseling or counseling; some employers, may, however, necessitate a master’s degree in the field of special education as well.
