PEOPLE WITH DISABILITIES:

What can YOU do?


Work is fundamental to our lives. It means so much more than a paycheck — it offers purpose and the opportunity to lead an independent, self-directed life for all people, including people with disabilities.

People with disabilities have the skills to pursue meaningful careers and play an important role in America’s educational and economic success. In fact, experience with disability can offer a competitive edge when it comes to work. If you are a person with a disability, only you can define your own limitations. High expectations are essential to success. Organizations exist that can help you seek employment, identify the tools you need to be productive on the job, and understand your right to be evaluated on your ability, not disability. Because after all, at work it’s what people can do that matters.

 

 


Tell us what YOU can do!
If you are a person with a disability, we’d like to hear from you.


Please take a moment to share information about your job skills and talents. Your story will increase employers’ awareness of the talents and skills that people with disabilities contribute to the workplace and help challenge misconceptions about disability and employment.

I have limited mobility due to an injury. Currently I use a walker and wheelchair to assist. Even though I battle daily life, I still go on. I can teach small children, mentor teenagers and use my chair to prepare meals. I plate dishes very well, make excellent vegetable curries and sauces, pastas and more. excellent verbal and communication skills. Very innovative and creative.
