Job Accommodation Network offers a variety of important resources --RSS Feed

One of my favorite resources is the Job Accommodation Network (JAN). JAN represents the most comprehensive job accommodation resource available. Go to www.askjan.org and browse through the resources made available to you! Here are some reasons why I utilize JAN:

  • JAN is a useful tool for researching your disability and finding ways that your job might be done more efficiently with an accommodation.
  • JAN also offers accommodation ideas classified by profession/occupation. This tool allows you to find information that you might not have thought about!
  • JAN educates not only people with disabilities, but also employers on best practices for addressing accommodations.
  • JAN has an Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA) library with detailed information on everything you might want to know about the ADA including recent amendments.
  • And lastly, JAN teaches you how to advocate for yourself and write an Accommodation Request Letter to your employer!
Check out the resources provided by the Job Accommodation Network and increase your independence!
