Curated: online discussion of employment for people with disabilities

Social Security’s Ticket to Work Program and the American Association of People with Disabilities moderated #DEChat, about disability employment, 9 a.m. Pacific on June 22.

The subject was career help for young people with disabilities who are transitioning to adulthood, but I found it to be invaluable. I believe it to be of benefit to people of all ages who face issues related to employment.

Resources shared by participants include when and how to disclose a disability, costs and benefits to an employer and the importance of self-advocacy.

Participants joined via Twitter and this morning I curated #DEChat with Storify. Read it at http://storify.com/CynthiaParkhill/curated-with-storify-career-help-for-youth-in-tran
