|"People with learning disabilities can learn buy they learn in a different way and a different rate than most people"||
Hi!!! my name is Nancy Taylor, I am 47 years old. When I was in kindergarten I started having some problems I could not follow my classmates in math and reading and I had to get help from my teacher. I had a learning disability and I still have it. My parents understood but a lot of people in the community do not understand. When I talk fast I stutter I need things written down. How was I going to get a job? I started at my work with someone called a job coach she helps me for the first month. Bob is my employer and with the help of my job coach, Bob understands my learning disabilities. I know I can be taught, I learn in a different way. My Perspective are I know I could not learn the way everyone else does but I learn in a different way. I've come a long way. I notice employers are hiring handicapped people. Bob is a special person and I have worked for 15 years at Miss Woodstock and this is what I do. ---- I wash the dishes in the dishwasher and some of the dishes with stains have to be soaked in the sink with bleach. I clean the bathrooms with a special cleaner and I also mop the stairs and the hall downstairs. My last job is to clean the kitchen floor and the main floor with bleach and soap. Oops !!! I also have to scrub all the pots. Bob has shown me how to do all of these jobs. I love going to work everyday and I'm starting to get to know all of my customers by name. I'm glad to be working in the community and hope to see you in the restaurant some day. I guess Bob has proved to me that I can learn.
Loving My Job
