Disability Expo, Sat, March 19-Does does this mean big changes in the workplace?

webI’m doing a talk on “Disability Does Not Have to Disable You: 5 Secrets for Career/Life Success!” In order to prepare, I looked at many workplace accommodations needed by people with disabilities.

I’m trying to break through some barriers that people with disabilities often have…”I can’t do this because of my disability.”  This may be more difficult than it seems.

Both sides need to be aware of what great employees they’d  make and that the workplace does not have to have “EVERYTHING” change!

Sometimes the workplace doesn’t have to completely change.  It’s people’s beliefs/ perceptions that often do need to change.  It could be as simple as lowering a desk to accommodate the height of someone who uses a wheelchair.

Technology allows voice communication on computers as well as mobile phones. All people,not just those with disabilities, often use that function.

The workplace doesn’t need to change drastically.  Just little tweaks-such as clearing files, handbags.. off the floor to allow a visually impaired/blind person to navigate more easily.  Don’t immediately rule out a person with disabilities as not being able to do a certain job. It’s illegal to do so.
