Getting Creative: Strategies vs. Accommodations at Work

Asking for a formal accommodation is certainly one option for getting the support you need to be more effective at work. However, there are numerous compensatory strategies that you can put in place when you don't want to disclose your disability or you don't want to make a formal request of your employer. From assistive technology to work space changes to lifestyle modifications, come hear experts representing various disabilities discuss the mechanisms they have put in place at work to help them be more productive. Bring your questions and ideas!
