Intake Form

You may complete and submit this form to request services for an issue directly related to a disability. A current phone number is required so DRSD can contact you for further information that will determine the level of services DRSD can provide.

If you are not comfortable with completing this form or have difficulty completing this form, please contact our office at 1-800-658-4782 and ask for an Intake Specialist.

If you are contacting Disability Rights South Dakota about an individual with a disability other than yourself, we will ask you to have the individual contact us directly, unless you are:

  • The parent of a minor child

  • The guardian, or

  • Other authorized representative
