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 am a functional quadriplegic, who can cook, and sew. I am also very good at listening to others, and great at giving them advice for problems that they may have.

I can do almost anything, as long as there's somebody who doesn't mind reminding of certain stuff that I need to do. Even, making a list of stuff I will need to do every day and that's another way I can be very productive in different roles of the job
