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 CAN...

I can do anything like normal hearing people do except hear and speak. I currently study the graduate program in rehabilitation counseling. I would like to add one fact that very many people with hearing loss experienced a recurrent barrier by not getting promoted easily with pay raise while hearing people could. Please give them a chance to see what they are capable of doing.

Do just about anything, except lift heavy weights. I am a lupus patient and advanced in years, I am missing most of the discs in my back, as well as the cartilage in my knees. By education I am a teacher, but my current employment is in food service. I work concessions and banquets at a local venue; and I out work people less than half my age.

Carolyn Rowland
I am retired. I have a disability in speech at times, but that did not keep from work. Now I am in a wheelchair and now I do odd jobs, like the voting polls. I rang bells for Salvation Army nine years. These are the jobs that I have done as a partial disabled.

Nick Contois
