From what I have witnessed around these parts, it’s still hard for individuals with disabilities to find a decent job in this day and age. With the proper support and perhaps a modification to the process or work area, these individuals can and will do a great job. A friend sent me the link to this story about Walgreen’s, which proves that point exactly. 

I tip my hat to this company for making the accommodations necessary to employ a diverse workforce and in the process, getting a 20% higher efficiency from this particular distribution plant. They are smart enough to realize the talent and potential of this under utilized group of people. Other companies are starting to take notice and this gives me great hope for the future for my daughter and for many other talented individuals who may not have otherwise been able to find gainful employment.
