Hi Tim, that’s really heartening to hear about your employer, as you say, not all employers are either as patient, or as empathetic. For me a lot of this is about education, and trying to spread the conversation about employing people with a disability, and in particular dispelling myths about disability employment. Your point about those ‘who fear the unknown’ is spot on I think, and the more we make it a less taboo subject the more employers are likely to open up and welcome the recruitment of people with a disability. I’ve worked in employment services for over ten years and it’s really frustrating to see the lack of progress, but having said that, there have been some steps made in recent years, so fingers crossed we keep moving in the right direction.
