See the person, not the disability

8 Apr 2015 14:49

I used to work for the Scottish consortium for learning disability (SCLD) where I travelled over Scotland to give presentations at different organisations ,such as the Scottish government and the national autistic society, about obstacles and stigma I experienced in my own journey getting in to employment. Having a learning disability myself I am able to share my thoughts and experience on facing these issues head on. I share that having a job makes you feel good, and a place where you can make new friends.
