Thank you for your post. One of the things that we do in my agency is help change employer mindsets regarding disabilities. We have developed a “business case” for hiring people with disabilities, showing employers that it’s good for the company and the bottom line, and encourage them to see it as a valuable part of diversity. By being open to differences and flexible in thinking about providing accommodations, employers can gain access to talented and untapped labor pool.
