Deconstructing Stereotypes

Nov 9, 2017

“The more we help and get people employed - that’s when people realize, 'Oh, this is a really high quality employee with really great skills. I just have to get past all those apprehensions and preconceived ideas of people with disabilities and look for the things they can do instead of the things I think they can’t do,'" says James Forbes, Field Service Counselor with the Humboldt County Department of Rehabilitation

Forbes and Ryan Estevo spoke with Brian Curtis on the KHSU Magazine about how the department works to empower people with disabilities to find work and to advocate for themselves.
