Individuals with disabilities

While individuals with disabilities can face various barriers to employment, DEW works with individuals to find ways to overcome these barriers. In addition to physical disabilities, "invisible" disabilities may also require accessibility considerations. Some examples of "invisible" disabilities include:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Diabetes
  • Cancer
  • Being hard of hearing
  • Struggling in school or received Individualized Education Program (IEP) in school

DEW works in partnership with several organizations to provide access to programs and initiatives to help individuals with disabilities gain employment and independence. In addition, DEW works closely with employers to help them understand tax credits and other incentives for supporting a diverse worksite.
