Workers, employers negotiate disability on the job

The New York Times Jobs Section August 23 had interviews with three workers with disabilities who explain that job success "can have much to do with others’ understanding of their abilities, goals and needs."

Daniel McIlwain, 27, who works as a network engineer at the Computer Sciences Corporation in Falls Church, Va., Adam Novsam, 41, who is an analyst in the energy and resource management department at Starbucks in Seattle and Andrea Edwards, 33, who works at the Gay Men’s Health Crisis in Manhattan, explain "the challenges and describe the many rewards of their careers."
