Assisting people with disabilities to find employment is in many ways not much different than working with any other customer. The biggest difference for people with disabilities is that they may need some support and assistance as they go through a job search, and that some of the steps are somewhat more intensive and deliberate. There also may be some considerations that must be addressed as a result of their disability, such as disclosure of disability to employers. Many of the techniques used to assist people with disabilities are also effective with other individuals who are considered to have "barriers" to employment.
