- A new-hire telemarketer with deficits in reading comprehension had to watch a computerized training tutorial, then complete timed quizzes on the computer. To accommodate this employee, the computer screen color scheme and font was adjusted to make it easier for the individual to read the test material. The employee used a ruler held to the computer screen to "stay on the line" when reading test questions. The employee was allowed to watch the tutorial more than once and was allowed to take the quizzes un-timed.
- A teacher with a learning disability had difficulty spelling words correctly on the chalkboard. The employer provided an overhead projector with plenty of blank overhead sheets.

Now the teacher can forgo using the chalkboard; instead the teacher can display information from the projector.
- A researcher in a technology company had expressive writing disorder. The employee's job tasks included gathering information for written reports.

- An employee who works in a manufacturing environment had a learning disability. The employee had difficulty remembering task sequences of the job.

- A building contractor with dyscalculia was inefficient when creating job quotes. To ensure the mathematical calculations were accurate, the employee spent extra time "figuring" and "double-checking" the numbers.

- A clerical worker with auditory processing disorder worked for a large employer where different work assignments were handed out daily. To ensure the job assignment was accurate, the employee used a voice recorder to capture information about the work assignment, such as the job location, the supervisor’s name, and tasks to be completed. To refresh his memory, the employee was able to listen to this recorded information whenever necessary, sometimes several times each day.
