- Abstract: Microenterprise can be a viable vocational rehabilitation option for many people with disabilities in today's economy. This self-employment option has been a neglected strategy by many rehabilitation professionals and agencies. A support system can be put in place to provide access to technical assistance in development of a successful business, beginning with the initial business concept and continuing into the life of the enterprise. People with disabilities are redefining the perception of success. Success is defined not only as financial gain for individuals, but also as control over workload, resolution of accommodation concerns, increased self-sufficiency, or participation in meaningful work.
