Among other observances, October is National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM). Started 70 years ago in a different form, this campaign aims to bring awareness to disability work issues and the contributions of American workers with disabilities. The 2015 NDEAM theme is “My disability is one part of who I am.” I’m proud to be employed by J.Lodge, a call monitoring company that employs mostly people with disabilities. For more information about NDEAM (currently sponsored by the Office of Disability Employment Policy), go to http://www.dol.gov/odep/topics/ndeam/. As a side note, October is also Dwarfism/Little People Awareness Month and National Spina Bifida Awareness Month.
