During National Disability Employment Awareness Month, the RAC is highlighting prominent people with disabilities (PWD), showing that PWDs deserve the same employment opportunities as able-bodied people.
Living with Disabilities
National Disability Employment Awareness Month, occurring every October, honors the contributions of employees with disabilities and highlights supportive policies that help employers and workers. This year's theme is "Advancing Access and Equity," coinciding with the 50 th anniversary of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, part of which outlaws discrimination against people with disabilities (PWD) in federal government.
In light of the 33 rd anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) last month, it can be valuable to shine a light on how this landmark civil rights law does not always work for people with high-functioning autism (HFA).
