Career development is a proactive and dynamic process aimed at meeting the needs of both the organisation and the individual. The limited literature suggests the relationship between career development and disability is complex. Individuals with a physical disability still face discrimination through stereotyping.

However, career development is not seen by individuals with a physical disability as wholly an organisational responsibility.
