    The Invisible Disability Page
    Welcome to the Invisible Disabilities Page! This page is aimed to those of us who have diseases, disorders and disabilities that aren't visible to most people and are misunderstood, or even met by hostility by society at large. As a hearing-impaired, vision-impaired person with ADD, I have had plenty of experience (too much) from this perspective. While there are many good disability pages, some of which I've included here, none have spoken from this view. This page is for all people with disabilities who want to understand each other a bit better without falling for the stereotypes so often held against them by others within the disabled community, and society at large. A site that explores the social and political problems of people who don't have visible disabilities, for all those told, "You're not really disabled!" - 25-Apr-2003 - Hits: 247 - Rate This | Details

    Working on the Dream: Top Rated
    A Guide to Career Planning and Job Success
    by Don Lavin and Andrea Everett
    Edited and Produced by Beth DePoint

    This is a hands-on career planning manual which was written to educate people with serious mental illness and the employment professionals who work with them. The book encourages people to take charge in choosing a career path, developing job goals and taking responsibility for planning their job-search strategies. I found it is well-written and down-to-earth, offering many worksheets, career planning profiles, tips, and sample letters and resumes to help the job searcher. It is probably for the beginner job applicant more so than for people with less serious mental illnesses. It also includes an entire chapter devoted to the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), etc. It is 137 pages long, in a workbook format, and was published in 1995. - 4-May-2000 - Hits: 247 - Rate This | Details
