Working with Disability

Beyond the Computer Screen

The internet age has brought immense benefits for people coping with functional challenges, thanks to new global connections that enable information transfer and commercial transactions from home. For many disabled individuals, this can mean the difference between engaging in a productive and fulfilling work-life, and letting their valuable talents go to waste. When issues of transportation or accommodation to a work environment pose insurmountable obstacles, telecommuting and online entrepreneurship now offer employment solutions that were unimaginable short years ago.

The opacity of online enterprise also offers a protective screen for disorders that may cause social discomfort, but disability should never have to be hidden, or rendered invisible. Working productively in spite of functional challenges can be considered an accomplishment in itself, and open discussion can promote awareness of issues affecting the disabled in society, as well as solidarity among people in similar circumstances.

Over the course of the past decade, the progression of a physical disorder has gradually limited the range of my own activities, but this hasn’t dampened my creative spirit and intellectual curiosity, or my thirst for engagement with the dynamic, productive energy of the working world. Thanks to the communications revolution, options for people in this situation have never been broader.
