ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) and Reasonable Accommodations
The objective of this discussion is to reflect on how organizations make accommodations for people with disabilities and are ADA-compliant.
Before beginning your assignment, review the following article:
Thenâ€”before you start write out your initial postâ€”do the following exercise:
- Write a disability on a separate sheet of paper. You can use anything as an example: a visible disability (immobility, for example) or an invisible disability (such as Aspergerâ€™s).
- Next, write out everything that comes to mind regarding stereotypes for this disability. If you can, try to also include some idea of how you came to know the stereotype(s).
- Then, come up with some activities you have experienced at your job (past, present, imagined) such as a general workshop of any kind, company picnic, or even something casually organized like getting together for a social event after work.
- Once you have this organized, youâ€™ll proceed to the discussion board for the next part of the assignment.
