A to Z of Disabilities and Accommodations

A to Z of Disabilities and Accommodations

Useful to Parent Centers, youth, families, and transition specialists when considering employment accommodations for a disability.

When a youth with disabilities is interested in employment, he or she needs to be aware of whether or not asking for a reasonable accommodation on the job is covered by the requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act (the ADA). A very good place to check is JAN, the Jobs Accommodation Network. It provides free, confidential technical assistance about job accommodations and ADA, and offers a great deal of information about both on its website.

This particular resource, A to Z of Disabilities and Accommodfations, is actually a landing page at JAN that branches into five separate lines of inquiry about accommodations.  Click the various tabs to navigate the information by Disability, Limitation, Work-Related Function, Topic, or Accommodation. You’ll find a wide variety of resources to help the individual in the workplace.
