Guide to Trade School for People with Disabilities
taken from www.primeweld.com
Professionally successful people living with a disability sometimes credit their impairment for boosting their career prospects, because it taught them perseverance and commitment. Others believe that their physical or cognitive differences in certain areas have led them to develop stronger abilities in others.
Choosing a trade school is an opportunity to assess one’s traits and capabilities, and find the right career for applying them.
Why Vocational or Trade School?
Success at a trade school can lead to stable employment with higher-than-average earnings. That makes trade school an attractive option for anyone.
For someone living with a disability, vocational or trade school training allows them to exhibit the talents and abilities they have, rather than those they don’t.
A trade school provides a structured learning environment, hands-on experience, and instruction from experts in the field. And like any accredited educational institution, trade schools are required to provide accommodations to level the playing field for students living with disabilities.
