There are varying degrees of human disability. Some people require constant care and attention and can perform only minor tasks without the assistance of others. Some are able to contribute in so many ways and have wonderful talents to offer.
But many of our impaired brothers and sisters only need a little understanding, mixed with perhaps some special training or minor equipment modifications, to give them the opportunity to become a viable part of a working organisation.
Disabled workers, who feel part of a workplace team, usually prove to be reliable and efficient. There’s dignity in being able to work and in being accepted in society.
No one is perfect – we all suffer disabilities in different degrees. Let’s deliberately look beyond the outer casing of our bodily selves to find the real beauty and ability in each other.
