You have a right to ask for accommodations at work to help you do your job.
Accommodations are changes that allow you to apply for a job, interview, take any required tests or perform your job.
Changes in work environment that allow you to get around — wheelchair ramps, special desks, letting you interview on the first floor, etc.
Changes in format for written materials —if you need instructions in large print, braille, or audio format
Special equipment — special keyboards, voice recognition software, etc.
Flexible work or break schedule
