This chapter explores the barriers and facilitators that operate within a number of human-services professions in relation to disabled people's access to those occupational groups. It draws attention to the overly homogenized perception of employment by looking at the policy implications of professional change. The chapter notes that professional-level work rarely receives explicit attention in policy terms, itself a noteworthy phenomenon which requires further research. It explores the changing nature of professional accreditation and the often awkward fit between these codes, requirements, and stipulations, as well as the opening-up of professional work to more disabled people. The chapter begs questions about the future of policy and policy impact in these employments.
