    I agree with the above comment, although it is a shame that employers will make assumptions if you have a disability the key is to not give them a chance to make that assumption! Always leave any information that can be used against you off your CV, e.g. Age, disability etc.

    It's sad that this is necessary but you want to give yourself the best chance possible when applying for jobs!

    I am a recruiter and I have a disability. Personally I would leave my disability off my CV if I were to make an application. I am very secure in my capabilities and know I would be an asset to any business however the presence of the disability on your CV gives the opportunity for the hiring manager to make assumptions of your capabilities (or perceived lack of them). It’s a shame as good people miss out on job opportunities as do prospective employers on good candidates.
