Embracing Inclusion: People With Disabilities Enriching the Workforce features over 100 profiles and photographs demonstrating ability and not disability in the work place. Those profiled represent people from across America as well as several foreign countries.

The book is truly a story of inclusion.  Introduced by President George H. Bush, who signed the American With Disabilities Act and Dr. Temple Grandin, Embracing Inclusion has become an important tool for potential employers. It has given parents a sense of hope It is an inspiration to those with a disability.

Embracing Inclusion is currently only available through the Damon Brooks Office. They may be contacedt via email at or by telephone in the Pacific Time Zone at (805) 604-9017. Checks or credit cards are accepted. Mr. Goldman is also available for speaking about the project and his 25 years as owner of the owner of the only speaker’s bureau that represents those with a disability.

“I tried to develop an instrument that would highlight the widest possible range of disabilities, abilities, age, cultural, sexual orientation and all fields of diversity. I am very proud of our accomplishment.”
