Talk to JAN About Accommodations in the Workplace

May 12 marked Day 75 of Disability.gov's countdown to the 20th anniversary of the passage of the Americans with Disabilities Act. Through their post, I learned about JAN for the first time. JAN stands for "Job Accommodation Network," and their website is here. According to the blog post, JAN is a resource for accommodations on the job, for employers and employees both. You can contact them through their website or their telephone numbers - 1-800-526-7234 or 1-877-781-9403 for TTY - and get live assistance on matters related to job accommodation.

They have some neat stuff on their website. For example, here's their list of "Accommodation Ideas for Hearing Loss." From there, you can select the type of accommodation that is needed and narrow down ideas and concepts to help. It also has information on what an employer needs to provide for an employee and what they can and can't do. There's a ton of information on there if you poke around.
