Accommodations are essential to the success of workers with disabilities. Being well-versed in accommodation planning and having knowledge of reasonable accommodation options are vital for rehabilitation professionals and workers with disabilities.
In this Webcast, Stuart Rumrill of the University of Wisconsin-Madison will present a job accommodation planning procedure referred to as "the win-win approach," along with a useful instrument known as the Work Experience Survey (WES), which assists professionals and employees with disabilities in identifying on-the-job barriers and determining appropriate accommodation solutions. To contextualize the win-win approach and the WES, results from a case study of four employed young adults with brain cancer will be presented.
This training is provided by the Rehabilitation Research and Training Center on Employer Practices for Individuals with Disabilities (VCU-RRTC-EP) at Virginia Commonwealth University.
