Reaching

Individuals may have difficulty reaching due to a variety of motor/mobility limitations. Some individuals may have difficulty reaching over the head, others may have difficulty reaching below the knee, while others may have difficulty reaching at the average waist height for the typical person. Accommodations come in a variety of solutions for a specific limitation. See below for some ideas to help you get started. 

Solutions:

Desks and tables that are adjustable allow individuals who use mobility aids, have to alternate between sitting and standing positions, or use various types of chairs to be more comfortable. Adjusting a working surface to meet individual needs increases their comfort and access.
