Disability Doesn’t Hold Him Back


Here is a great story from the Autism News.

Tye Horn sets goals and achieves them.

 Horn, who has mild developmental disability, was hired as a parking lot attendant at Home Depot in Newbury Park when he was 19. After pushing carts for nearly a decade, he set his sights on moving inside and becoming a cashier.

 “I said, ‘I’m up for anything.’ I didn’t know anything about money or what I was getting into,” said Horn, a Newbury Park resident. “It was scary. . . . People didn’t think I could do it. I proved them wrong.”

 After five years behind a register, Horn was promoted last year to sales associate in the hardware department—a position that allowed him to make a better life for himself and his son, 15, who is also developmentally disabled.
