October Awareness Month

October is National Disability Employment Awareness Month, a time to promote inclusion and celebrate the significant contributions of workers with disabilities.

According to the U.S. Department of Labor’s Bureau of Labor Statistics, 17.9 percent of individuals with disabilities were employed in 2020, down from 19.3 percent in 2019. In contrast, the employment-population ratio for those without a disability was 61.8 percent, down from 66.3 percent in 2019.

“COVID-19 has presented new challenges for people with disabilities, such as increased health risks, isolation and job loss,” said Devereux Advanced Behavioral Health Vice President of Operations - Adult Services Stephen Bruce, M.Ed., BCBA. "We want to make sure these individuals have the opportunity to showcase their skills and talents; obtain meaningful employment in the community; and thrive in a safe environment.”
