This module explores what a physical disability is. We begin by defining physical disability and discussing some of the causes of physical disabilities. Then, we examine how a physical disability is different from a developmental disability and the special adaptations people with physical disabilities may need to make. A physical disability may or may not be developmentally related. Some developmental disabilities that we discussed in Module 6 may result in physical disability.

If you have a disability and you're having trouble landing a job, you aren't alone. If you can relate, the good news is that there are lots of companies that have exceptional work environments that make it a priority to recruit employees who have disabilities. The following companies, listed in no particular order, have all been recognized for their efforts in creating disability-friendly workplaces. Aetna is a leader in the insurance market and offers employees a unique, innovative workplace environment.

For many people with disabilities, meeting the requirements of a traditional job can be nearly impossible. But just because commuting or working long hours at a time may be difficult, that doesn't mean the disabled can't be productive in the workplace. The answer for many is to work from home. For many years, telecommuting jobs were scarce and limited mostly to the technically knowledgeable and writers. NTI offers three ways people with disabilities can get work-from-home jobs.
