Employers must make reasonable accommodations for qualified individuals (employees with a documented disability), unless the accommodation will cause the employer undue hardship. Accommodations can be modifications to the work schedule or job duties (e.g., flexible work schedules), changes to physical environment (e.g., a ramp), or accessible technologies (e.g., screen readers).
Teaching your child to ask for reasonable accommodations will help them succeed in the workplace.
