ADA’s 21st Anniversary: The Impact of Reasonable Accommodations

ADA’s 21st Anniversary: The Impact of Reasonable Accommodations

I had the benefit of attending the 20th ADA Anniversary Celebration last year in Washington, D.C. It was an amazing time, and I have seen, first hand, the benefits that this legislation has rendered. I can only hope that more employers gain an understanding of what individuals with disabilities go through, and to see past the disability and look at what that person can offer their work environment. There are plenty of ways to accommodate an individual, and many people bring so much to a workplace that they are so worth the benefits and outweigh any risks or costs.
Please pass this on to any employers you may work with or come in contact with… break down the walls, and encourage diversity!
