Microenterprise: An Alternative to Traditional Jobs
DeZonia, Krysti
Exceptional Parent, v39 n10 p30 Oct 2009
A microenterprise, as the name implies, is a very small business, typically employing only the owner or one to two other employees. Microenterprise is fast becoming a viable and attractive option for adults with a wide range of disabilities, including those who have very significant disabilities. The best way to decide if microenterprise development is the best employment option for one's son or daughter is to first examine his or her likes, dislikes, and abilities. Employment should bring a sense of personal fulfillment and a happy life, regardless of the job or circumstance. People with disabilities, from mild to very severe, are increasingly finding microenterprise a good option to individually tailor a job to suit their individual needs. Microenterprise development is a good option for people who are not suited to more traditional jobs.
