Northeast ADA Center Webinar: Minding Your Business: Engaging People with Learning, Psychiatric, and Cognitive Disabilities in the Workplace

Better diagnosis and treatment of psychiatric, learning, and cognitive disabilities, coupled with the understanding that these disabilities are not character flaws, but brain disorders, have resulted in many more people with these disabilities being in the labor market than was the case just a decade ago. Thus, the workplace inclusion of these individuals presents a relatively new dilemma for many employers. This webinar will: • Facilitate awareness of different types of psychiatric, learning, and cognitive disabilities • Enhance understanding of the facts and myths around these types of disabilities • Make the business case for creating a workplace that is welcoming and accommodating to people with these disabilities • Provide resources for identifying possible workplace accommodations • Explore best practices for engaging people with these types of disabilities in the workplace • Consider factors related to organizational cultures that help facilitate acceptance of people with these disabilities
