It’s about educating companies on how inclusion and hiring people with disabilities or special needs is good for business.
I wish we had better prepared for this phase of Gavin’s life because helping him find some form of employment would be awesome for him.
Gavin absolutely loves cleaning, is incredibly creative and is always looking to help others. He needs accommodations but he also brings things to the table that no one else could. An employer could absolutely benefit from his cleaning abilities, creativity, work ethic, willingness to help and his ability to get along with everyone. What can I say, he is awesome!
The point is, these are things much better thought about in advance and prepared for over time. My hope is that you read this and it sparks a conversation within your family because it’s never too late to plan for the future and never too early to plan for the transition into adulthood. The more time you spend planning and preparing, the better off you’ll be.
So tell me about you.
Do you have a special needs family member that is active in the workforce or would like to be? What has your experience been?
