The Northeast ADA Center has developed several online toolkits that are available to a variety of audiences. These toolkits can assist you in your efforts to better understand ADA rights and responsibilities, and improve disability inclusiveness efforts in your business, agency, or workplace.
People with disabilities bring a great deal to our workforce: Education, skills, adaptability, resilience and commitment. The Making Work Happen online tutorials aim to enhance the employment of people with disabilities by providing users with free, self-paced, on-demand learning experiences based on real-life issues and challenges around inclusiveness in the workplace. There is a toolkit for Employers and one for Service Providers. Each tutorial provides several learning options: General overviews, points from relevant research, self-assessments, true/false quizzes, print-n-go checklists and links for further resources.
Designed in a similar fashion to the Making Work Happen General Employment Online Toolkit, the Veterans with Disabilities Making Work Happen Online Toolkit is specifically about reintegrating Veterans with Disabilities into our civilian workforce. There are three toolkits, one for employers, for service providers, and for veterans themselves. Each toolkit provides strategies and practices for improving the recruitment, supervision, retention, and support of veterans with disabilities within the workplace.
