Vocational accommodations have legal, ergonomic and technological components. In this three-part course, we’ll start by introducing the concept of Universal Design for products and environments, which has significant implications for people who would otherwise need accommodations. In the second part of the course, you'll learn about all parties' responsibilities regarding human rights complaints, as well as how the duty to accommodate develops.
In the final part of the course, we'll discuss assistive technology and how it relates to job accommodations. You’ll learn about technology such as alternate computer access, cognitive aids, visual aids, and communication aids. You’ll also have a chance to try several assistive devices.
