I am looking for opportunities where I can use my special abilities

I am on the ASD spectrum and I have an acquired physical disability. I am looking for opportunities where I can use my special abilities; I can work with statistics, Excel, SPSS and have the highest level of research experience. I am limited a bit to what physical work I can do.
