1 in 10 American Children has a Disability.
80% of Adults with Disabilities are unemployed.
Of those with jobs, only 20% have full time employment.
MYTH: Persons with disabilities are unable to meet performance standards, thus making them a bad employment risk.
FACT: A 1981 DuPont study which involved 2,745 employees with disabilities found that 92% of employees with disabilities rated average or better in job performance compared to 90% of employees without disabilities. The 1981 study results were comparable to DuPont’s 1973 job performance study.
