Is it likely I'll be able to get programming work?

I love programming, and I did web dev (my own projects) a few years ago. Unfortunately, my disabilities got in the way and I had to quit for a while.

I'm current a student, and I'm triple majoring. Most relevantly, I'm taking computer science. So, I'll have that piece of paper - whatever that's worth...

Is it likely that I'll be able to find a decent position that would allow me to work from home, and only part time - perhaps 20hr/wk? I'm not sure I could do 40hr, because of my physical limitations.

From my experience its pritty cut throat. There are no set working hours its just a dead line to get that job done by. Which could some times work out at 18 hour days straight to get it completed.
You have places like India and China which are really driving the pay down and expected hours to meet dead line to get worse.
I got out of it 8 years ago so I imagin its only worse now.

It would be hard to find a job working from home when you have no experience, and the same goes with part time work. BUT... having a disiability may make it easier for them to make an exception, but probably overall harder to find a job too. I recommend networking. Meet people. I have had 4 jobs and never once actually got a job I applied for. Each one of them was from networking one way or another.

Its better now actually. So, simply put... management was like, hey we can just outsource everything... they try it, and lack of skill or communication provided them with a bad product. So, over time they have been pulling back on it more and more. Contract companies give them visas and fly them over to work in the office. Important stuff is done here, less important or tedious work tends to get oursourced. In icor's situation, he needs that less important tedious work because that's where you start.
