What does a “disabled person” look like? With so many symbols and pictures displaying a wheelchair icon it is difficult for many to visualize a person standing, walking, talking, etc who may need an accommodation at work or college. Almost 20 million persons with disabilities are in the United States workforce managing chronic pain, alcoholism, respiratory diseases, diabetes, cancer, HIV/AIDS, traumatic brain injuries, fibromyalgia, arthritis, rheumatic diseases,  post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and many psychiatric and learning disabilities. Learning to adapt to a disability that is not visible is most difficult because society demands visual proof of things. Employers, employees, and adult students need education to understand how differently-abled employees can contribute to the workforce. You are invited by Professor Danita Applewhite and the staff of White Apple Institute to share your story or listen as other Listeners and Guests share theirs by calling 1-646-727-3758 every Saturday morning from 10 to 10:30 (AZ time) or visit us at anytime to hear previous episodes
