The education sector is comprised of a lot of different types of jobs. What is different about workstations in educational settings versus other types of sectors is that they involve instructional work. It's not uncommon for an educator to need a specific type of equipment to accommodate a motor, mobility, hearing, vision, and/or cognitive impairment. For these types of situations, a job accommodation may involve modifying the way an essential job function is typically done and can include purchasing one or more pieces of equipment. Here are some examples of equipment that JAN suggests for these situations. For additional information, visit JAN's other resources under A to Z and use JAN's Searchable Online Accommodation Resource (SOAR) or contact JAN directly for what you are needing.
