Workers with Disabilities

For many people with disabilities, a good planning process includes real opportunities for exploring the world of work and developing preferences and interests. Good career exploration gathers information, not only on specific interests and skills, but also on the personal characteristics and other attributes that the job seeker has to offer.

CareerSource Palm Beach County provides specialized equipment in its career centers that will help people with disabilities to research and apply for jobs, including:

  • JAWS (Job Access with Speech): A software program that makes personal computers using Microsoft Windows accessible to blind and visually impaired users
  • Sorenson Video Relay: Empowers the deaf and hard-of-hearing community to communicate with both deaf and hearing business contacts using video relay service

CareerSource Palm Beach County also can arrange for a sign-language interpreter for in-house interviews, or for help with job search paperwork.

For more information, send an email to TicketToWork@careersourcepbc.com, or call CareerSource Palm Beach County at 561-340-1060 ext. 2362.
