Working Your Assets

The key to success is working your assets, so if you have a disability, you need to focus on what you do WELL not what you do badly.  The same goes for helping people with disabilities.  Figure out what they are good at, and find ways to use that for success in school or work.  Here's an example of capitalizing on autistic children's skill with computers.  Frame it in a positive way and find constructive uses for it.  Autistic people often focus on a passion far beyond what most folks do.  They have tremendous potential; don't waste it.

The stuff people suck at?  Try to get good enough for minimum safe function, or else find ways to work around something that just can't be done.  Don't freak out over it, nobody is good at everything.
