      October is National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM). We will be discussing different work-related topics on the forum this month. I remember when my son Noah, who has FA but wasn’t diagnosed at the time, turned 16 and began to apply for a part-time summer job. He had (and still has) voice issues and never heard anything back after multiple interviews. Has your loved one with FA been able to find a job that is a good fit? Let us know about your experiences.

      I was once unemployed a few years ago. When I would apply to jobs and successfully pass the phone interview process, the next step was to do an in-person interview. I thought they went well, because the employer thought I was qualified for the role and expressed interest. So why wouldn’t I get a response? I could tell part of the reason for not getting the job was because I was using a walker. I almost felt like it would have been a nuisance. Having a disability in the workplace does set accommodations and modifications, but it can be done.
