Nina in her office

As a person with a learning disability, a teacher has to accommodate me under the law. I just wish I had a bigger mouth in high school and advocated for myself more.

—Nina, a psychologist


Your future is open. Although people with disabilities often face barriers moving into the world of work, many do succeed. Many discover exciting jobs inspired by their interests and abilities.
