Effectively Supporting Employees With Disabilities

December 15

Become familiar with the disability mindset, the visibility of a condition and its significant impact, and overall barriers to accessibility.

What are the benefits and challenges unique to supporting your employees with disabilities? Employees with disabilities can lead to complex interpersonal social dynamics, workflow variations, inclusivity challenges, and workplace accommodations. This topic includes an assessment of the ADA (law versus practical application) and how to interpret this to create an accessible workplace. You will become familiar with the disability mindset, the visibility of a condition and its significant impact, and overall barriers to accessibility. You will come away from this discussion with a clear understanding of the different types of job accommodations and modifications, as well as best practices for implementing them to ensure successful outcomes for all stakeholders.

Learning Objectives

  • You will be able to describe the ADA, undue hardship, and reasonable accommodations.
  • You will be able to discuss the disability and ‘N’ of 1 mindset.
  • You will be able to explain the benefits of an early and gradual return-to-work plan.
  • You will be able to recognize types of accommodations and modifications specific to an individual.
