In the Fall of 2004, Contact Point conducted a survey to find out how we can continue to provide career practitioners with the information and support they need to do their jobs better. We asked participants to provide a list of topics or subject areas they would like to see on Contact Point. In response to the feedback received from survey respondents, this issue of the Bulletin features new articles on the challenges people with disabilities face when seeking employment and strategies they utilize to overcome these obstacles.
