“Showing Your Abilities”


State Policies & Initiatives: 

~~Employment for individuals with disabilities is the focus in October when we celebrate Disability Employment Awareness Month.

A top priority for the Florida Agency for Persons with Disabilities (APD) is helping people with developmental disabilities find meaningful jobs. Many other state agencies and partners are actively supporting the mission of employing people with disabilities.

The state of Florida supports businesses that recognize and are committed to hiring individuals with special abilities. Make plans to attend Florida’s Exceptional Employer Awards event on October 4 at Tallahassee City Hall, 300 South Adams Street, to recognize 10 companies from around the state who excel in employing people with special abilities. The 12th Annual Awards event begins at 8:30 a.m. I hope you will be there to celebrate and learn more about hiring capable employees with special abilities.”
