Telecommuting as a Path to Employment for People with Disabilities

Stella has long had this thought in the back of her mind: telecommuting is ideal for people with disabilities. And then I find this agency, NTI, which specializes in training workers with disabilities for telecommuting jobs in a variety of fields (mostly customer service, call center, and medical transcription). But really, how cool is that?

If you're an employer who already uses telecommuters in some fashion, consider expanding your program to seek out and hire people with disabilities as well. It's a great way to keep a person in the workforce and contributing their talents and skills to society.
