Our Office Assistant Apprentice Sarah Armour had the opportunity to share what it ‘s like to be in the workplace as a person with a disability as a guest blogger on ThinkBeyondTheLabel.com.
“When I graduated, I thought that because I was no longer using the school’s learning-disability services, it meant that I was no longer a person with a disability. I thought that I could just go out into the work world like my peers without disabilities. But simply leaving school doesn’t mean the challenge of having a disability goes away.”

Your awnser was just what I needed. It’s made my day!
That was a GREAT posting! I admire your writing and what you have accomplished in a short time (post college).
I have a question. I had a seizure at work and my doctor gave me a slip to return to work my employer said they wanted to wait for the next test and the diagnosis. i now have everything completed and now they said they filled my position and theres nothing open. Can they do ths and is this legal. They promised my position was mine and that they just wanted me to get all the tests done.
