Our Thanks


The North Carolina Council on Developmental Disabilities would like to thank all of our remarkable participants from Sylva to Morehead City, for sharing their time, talents and stories.

Through these stories and photographs of working people with disabilities, North Carolina continues to define America’s employment opportunities where everybody works together in one workforce.

Creating inclusive employment enhances the lives of all North Carolinians and creates pathways to financial security, community living and self-determination.

People with disabilities stay in their jobs longer, achieve equal or better job performance ratings and have the skills and talents to work in a wide variety of fields. Businesses who tap into this pool of talented individuals will find employees who are driven, determined and ready to work.

As North Carolina's one workforce continues to grow, more people with disabilities will begin their journey doing what they love while being key contributors to their communities.


This Lookbook is produced by the North Carolina Council on Developmental Disabilities, which was established by the Developmental Disabilities Assistance and Bill of Rights Act (PL 106-402) to promote interdependence, contribution, self-determination, integration and inclusion into the community for citizens with developmental disabilities and in partnership with North Carolina Vocational Rehabilitation (NCVR). The NC Department of Health and Human Services does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, sex, religion, age or disability in employment or the provision of services.
