A job is the basic prerequisite for a regular income and thus for a self-determined life and participation. As a person with a disability, you need not only an employer who gives you the chance to prove yourself, but also very specific auxiliary aids. How those already help to make everyday working life easier today and in the future and why inclusive approaches are particularly important in the area of software, we explain in our Topic of the Month.
