The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) reported a drop in Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) charges in 2014, according to the latest statistics. From FY 2013’s total of 25,957, FY 2014 saw a 2.27-percent drop to 25,369. Around 96 percent of the total number of cases in FY 2014 were resolved, of which 62 percent were via no reasonable cause, meaning the EEOC found no evidence of discrimination.
The difficulty to find employment is one of the painful realities persons with disability, including adults with cerebral palsy (CP) have to go through. CP manifests differently in every individual. While there are those who can express themselves verbally or walk on their own, there are others who would need advanced communication gadgets, mobility aids, and/or assistance from another person.
