I've had a break from university, about a week in fact. I'm starting classes again today.
I watched a show on the ABC, which is Australia's national broadcaster. It's called Employable Me, and features three people with neurological conditions attempting to obtain employment. It was pretty eye-opening in a lot of ways.
Firstly, how people with neurological disorders (autism, Tourette's) find it difficult to even get jobs and stick to it.
Secondly, what it's like to be a parent of a child with such a disorder. Most of the people on the show were in a single-parent family, which might say a lot how taxing it would be for the parents.
Thirdly, employers need to see the abilities of their candidates, rather than their disability.
Overall, I quite enjoyed it.
