National Disability Employment Awareness Month

October is National Disability Employment Month. That’s a cause close to my heart for two reasons: 

I encourage employers to consider hiring qualified workers who happen to have disabilities. Although you might have to make a few special accommodations, I believe you will find the minor inconveniences worth it.

If you are a worker who has a disability, remember that your abilities are more important than your disabilities. Focus on what you do well. As the song says, “Accentuate the positive; eliminate the negative.”

If you’re neither an employee or a worker with disabilities, I hope you will take advantage of National Disability Employment Awareness Month to learn more.
