Using CAP Resources to Plan for National Disability Employment Awareness Month
Posted by Alexandra Kielty - On September 10, 2014 (EST)
October is National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM). NDEAM is a nationwide campaign that raises awareness of not meeting the goals of disability employment issues and honors the contributions of workers with disabilities. This year’s theme is “Expect. Employ. Empower.” There are multiple Computer and Electronic Accommodation Program (CAP) resources available to help agencies participate in NDEAM and bring awareness to disability employment during the month of October and throughout the year.
- Online Trainings: CAP has created a series of online training modules. These modules help employers understand the process of hiring employees with disabilities and how to provide reasonable accommodations after they are hired.
- Assistive Technology (AT) Videos: demonstration videos provide in-depth information on the most commonly requested accommodations and how these solutions can help employees with disabilities. CAP has 14 videos on their CAP YouTube Channel at: youtube.com/thedodcap.
- Materials: Download free materials on CAP services, employment of individuals with disabilities, workplace accommodations, and ergonomics at cap.mil/newsevents/ marketing.aspx.
- Poster: CAP has created a series of printable posters themed around reasonable accommodations for use at your agency. These posters are available for free download at cap.mil/newsevents/marketing/CAPPosters.aspx
