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 mental health consumer. I am intelligent and capable. I am very skillful. I am typing this on a computer so others can read it. I am a good worker and succeed at the workplace. I want employers to know that. I want to have more opportunity to work and hope the disability system will offer more transitional programs to assist with getting more hours or promotions.

think outside the box, since every disability is different the solution for people will not always be the same. Most importantly, do not believe people when they tell you something is impossible. It may be improbable but every barrier to success CAN be demolished, it just takes time and effort.
