To date, studies of disabled people and employment have mainly focused on barriers to gaining and maintaining employment. This report breaks new ground in asking: how do those disabled people who are already in work get and keep paid work?Written in an accessible style, the report:·[vbTab]details the strategies disabled people use to thrive and survive at work;·[vbTab]exposes the employment difficulties disabled people face in work environments designed by and for non-disabled people;·[vbTab]looks at the policy context in which disabled people maintain paid work;·[vbTab]draws on the experiences related by disabled people themselves; ·[vbTab]frames questions in terms of the issues that are important to disabled workers.
