Brian knew he was capable of more, but felt that his physical disability and speech impediment were
limiting his choices.
“I am appreciative of the fact that there are programs that exist that want to help people with
disabilities and realize that their disabilities do not define them; that they are capable of some much
more than they think they are."
Brian met with a Customized Employment Consultant who suggested various program and certifications to
increase his experience.
“The certificates gave me the necessary skills to have a greater impact at work. I also started to gain
confidence in my abilities and see myself for what I can do, not what I struggle to do.”
Through a work experience placement, Brian was able to gain the experience he needed and is now employed
"Even though you may have challenges in getting a job, there is a place for you and the people in this
program are here to help you find it, and they will not stop until they find the right job for you.”
