As a student with a visible or invisible disability, you have protections from the Americans with Disabilities Act that prohibit you from discrimination and entitle you to accommodations to ease your school and work experience. Affordable Colleges Online has created a Career Guide that explains the ADA in plain terms and outlines your rights, how to request an accommodation, and more!
This guide also includes some tips on navigating the job and internship search as a disabled person, including answers to some frequently asked questions. There are links to several job boards specifically for disabled job-seekers and internship-seekers that are full of accommodating employers. You will also find additional resources for your success and career development designed to educate, support, and empower disabled students and workers.
