October is Disability Employment Awareness Month. Many adults with Williams syndrome are out in the world working and volunteering and we look forward to highlighting them in social media stories throughout the month!

Many individuals and their families work with local social services agencies for job exploration, placement and coaching. Devin (pictured on the left) from Ohio attended the AutoTech Program at the Mid-East Career and Technology Center following high school, and now works at Orme Hardware Cambridge. His duties include stocking shelves and cleaning rental equipment. He obtained employment with the help of the Guernsey County Board of Developmental Disabilities and Opportunities for Ohioans with Disabilities. He enjoys his job and the people he interacts with while working.
