Greetings. I'm contemplating whether or not I want to enter the education profession in Ohio via a nontraditional route as described on this page at the Ohio Department of Education. I have a bachelor's degree in computer science and am prepared to complete the additional coursework in education. There might be a potential problem, however. I have a moderate vision deficiency (20/100 vision in both eyes) and am also a high-functioning autistic. I'm curious about forum-dwellers' experiences with their own districts. Are administrators apt to hire the disabled? If so, are they given the additional tools needed to achieve excellence in the profession, or are they treated as second-class citizens? I figure I would obtain a long-term substitute teaching license and see if the profession is a match for me beforehand, but the threat of disability discrimination still rears its ugly head. What do you think?
