Did you know October is National Disability Employment Awareness month? National Disability Employment Awareness month is a national campaign that raises awareness about disability employment issues and celebrates the many and varied contributions of America’s workers with disabilities. EIASE’s Pre-Vocational Department wants to thank our local area businesses for partnering with our schools and Illinois Department of Human Services (Division of Rehabilitation Services) to provide students with disabilities the tools needed to transition into the world of work after graduation. Obtaining part time employment during high school promotes responsibility, punctuality, and reliability. Thank you to those who employ students with disabilities and help promote valuable work skills at a young age which builds character and self-confidence the students will carry with them for a lifetime.
