Getting a job that you enjoy that also utilizes your talents and lets you support yourself can be difficult for anyone, but the problem can be compounded if you have a disability. The degree to which you are limited by your cerebral palsy can affect what you are able to do professionally. Many people, disabled or not, find jobs through their personal network of friends and acquaintances.

This method works quite well for the disabled person, as it is possible that the person may be seen in a different light if the employer hears about them through a mutual friend. An Individualized Habilitation Plan, or an IHP, can provide the necessary services and aid a disabled person might require to successfully lead a (mostly) independent life. Unfortunately, individuals who are severely physically impaired, but have no cognitive disability whatsoever, may find it nearly impossible to find a job in the private sector. Many adults who are unemployed develop depression as a result of feelings of inadequacy due to not being employed. These issues are equally important for the disabled person. If you are finding it difficult to find a job, consult the state or a governmental agency, and push for them to help you find employment, or maybe even set up jobs.

 Despite the fact that the current laws ban discrimination against disabled persons, the problem of discrimination still exists. There is also usually a good deal more acceptance found in the educational community rather that the professional world, and it is far more likely that you will find a job the more education you have under your belt.

 In dealing with barriers to employment, one must first and foremost understand that such barriers do exist – the next step is anticipating them. Networking with familiar contacts when looking for employment often results in better outcomes than attempting to enter the open market where no one knows you. This style of job hunting is usually the most fruitful for anyone, regardless of education, skills, or other capabilities: if you have access to a network in a field in which you would like to be employed, utilize it.
