Julie Carpenter Graduated from the Federal Way High School  Transition Program in 1991.   She had already begun a full time job at The Boeing Company sorting and delivering mail.  She worked successfully at Boeing for 29 years despite the fact that she was unable to read.  She did this by using her incredible mental mapping ability and receiving training that included universal design to help her sort and deliver the mail accurately.  She feels she has often been underestimated, judged and labeled without people getting to know her. Using Julies experiences, this class will look at how to set up support on the job that utilizes the persons strength,  understand some of the struggles a person with disability faces,  and helping them develop strategies to deal with stress and frustration.
