When we talk about barriers to employment, we think about accessibility, transportation, and access to reasonable accommodations.  Michael Coyne, who lives with autism, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), and bipolar disorder had trouble finding a job for two years.  Despite the lack of success, he kept going, dreaming bigger.  Read Michael’s story here.
