How Viewing Employees With Disabilities as 'Differently Abled' Hurts Disabled Workers

Reading now: 102

Recently, I was shopping in one of my local grocery stores when I heard an announcement that caught my attention. The store was telling how they won an award for hiring people with disabilities.

As a person with a learning disability, this caught my interest because I’m always interested in hearing how employers accommodate those with disabilities.

However, the message was doing little to tell how they accommodate individuals who have health conditions. To make matters worse, the message ended with saying how the company was committed to helping people who were “differently abled.” I couldn’t believe what I was hearing.
