Accommodation Ideas for Post-Polio Syndrome (PPS)

Polio (poliomyelitis) is a disorder caused by a viral infection (poliovirus) that can affect the whole body, including muscles and nerves. Severe cases may cause permanent paralysis or death. Polio occurs worldwide; however, no cases of polio have been reported in the United States in recent years (the last case of non-vaccine related polio acquired in the United States was in 1979). Just as symptoms may vary from person to person, so may the need for job accommodation.
