One thing I kind of dislike is how a lot of resources paint workplace accommodations as something the workplace gives 100% in. Which is kind of true but kind of not.
Allow me to explain what I’m talking about: Just because my workplace is asthma accommodating and (I’ve found out over time since they recognized me as autistic before I recognized myself as it) autism accommodating doesn’t mean that they do all the accommodations.
I work with coworkers who have disabilities of their own. Something like 14% of Canadians have disabilities, so it’s not too surprising that I work with a couple who have them. I provide accommodations for dyslexia (I read to a coworker and type for her sometimes) and arthritis (I cart stuff up and down the stairs so my coworker doesn’t have to, do heavy lifting, etc).
So accommodation is less “Them providing 100%” and more “a formal way for everyone to be safe in playing to their strengths.” Proper workplace accommodation is, to me, just an extension of a healthy working environment.
