Posted by Alexandra Kielty - On June 18, 2015 (EST)

This Podcast is sponsored by the Social Security Administration: For many people with disabilities, getting a job means working with an employer to create workplace supports and adjustments when appropriate. These supports - known as job accommodations - allow people with disabilities to do job duties and be as productive as possible. The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) protects people with disabilities who need a reasonable accommodation both during the hiring process and on the job. Common examples of job accommodations may include things like assistive technology, changes to work settings or adjusted work schedules.

But how can a person with a disability go about obtaining job accommodations for work? The Job Accommodation Network (JAN) is a great place to start. Listen to or download the transcript for this episode of Ticket Talk in which three JAN resources are discussed that can help individuals be successful on a path to financial independence.
