When it comes to working in the disability support services industry, there’s a lot to consider.

First and foremost, you’ll want to think about the people you’ll be helping. In the disability sector, this means people of all ages, backgrounds, and needs. It also means that you’ll have a range of levels of support available for each person—everything from minimal assistance to full-fledged 24/7 care.

If you want to work as a disability worker, you should also consider what it takes to provide that level of care: Are there physical barriers? Is it easier or harder to get through them with a wheelchair? How much space do they need? Do they need access to resources like a printer or copier? Do they communicate with words or pictures or both?

And finally, how do you provide that level of care? There are different types of jobs in the disability support services sector. If being a disability worker sounds like something you’d like to do, then check out our list of three ways you can get started on your path:
