It explains how you can use training strategies, methods, and devices to accommodate special needs; rid yourself of inaccurate and damaging perceptions about what employees with disabilities can and can't do; comply with ADA and other legislation; change attitudes and remove both physical and psychological barriers in the workplace; and train managers and supervisors of employees with disabilities.
The book offers general instructional approaches as well as specific techniques for working with employees with disabilities in the classroom, shop, laboratory, or other workplace environment.
