Ive actively been encouraging my son to apply for jobs for which hes not qualified, yet any average 'normal' person would be able to accommodate. However my plans for him to join the working human rat/force came unstuck when I took him for an interview and he was asked to complete an examination - reading writing & maths - doh.
Poor lad he came out feeling sick, worried and I felt dreadful encouraging him to try compete with others.
I feel we cannot win (Im his carer), if we say he is disabled in some way, then the first hurdle doesnt seem to be breached. Say nothing and he may stand a chance. But then there is the question what job and where? We have applied for everything printed with no joy this year except this horrible experience I encouraged him to go through.
How does this pan out when so many disabled are expected to join the workforce?
