Hello and welcome to Can-Do-Ability. My name is Steven and Iím the Social Media Facilitator at NOVA Employment, an organisation that helps people with disabilities.
Using this blog, it will be my job to keep you informed about current news relating to disabilities as well as stories of peoples triumphs over their disability. It is my hope that this site will be an area where you and I can discuss and share our experiences of having a disability, so we can try to spread awareness that while our disabilities place limitations on us, but we can overcome them.
I want to hear your suggestions on what you would like to see on this blog. So if you have any feedback or questions. Feel free to let me know and I will be happy to answer them.
I look forward to talking with you all and bringing you information on a wide range of topics.
