The Rocky Mountain MS Center welcomes the Job Accommodation Network (JAN), a fantastic workplace accommodation resource. JAN is the leading source of free, expert, and confidential guidance on job accommodations and disability employment issues. In this webinar, Matthew McCord, M.S., CRC discusses examples of adaptations for six common MS symptoms:
- fine motor coordination,
- temperature sensitivity,
- stress, and
- blurred vision.
He shares JAN’s 6-step sample interactive process for handling an accommodation request and he will explore the askjan.org website so that people are better able to utilize the resources within it.
