Disabled Veterans Can Benefit from Telecommunication Services

Posted on February 15, 2016 by Disability Help Group

The GI Bill provides financial benefits to veterans seeking continuing education at colleges and universities across the nation. Active duty military may also benefit from this bill and the participating schools are now finding unique answers to the special needs of many servicemembers.

For active duty military students, many of them face difficulty with deployment barring them from completing their degree. Thanks to Internet-based systems, such as online courses, video lectures, and Skype video chat, soldiers can participate with their classes and even attend commencement if they’re deployed on the other side of the globe.

These same services can also benefit soldiers and veterans who are disabled from combat-related injuries or illnesses. Many disabled veterans are unable to work or attend a traditional campus class, but can still find great benefit in continuing their education through online, remote classes.

Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is one of the most common disabling conditions that a veteran may be treated for remotely. The Telehealth system provided by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) helps provide counseling and support to these veterans through remote video conferencing.

Telecommunications have been advancing disabled veterans’ programs and services for years now and continue to improve the programs offered by the VA and other government branches. For severely disabled veterans that find it difficult to travel, veterans’ disability benefits may help them connect to online resources like these for education and health care.
