    Here is a good article about workplace accommodations for people with disabilities, that was recently published in the Quest magazine from the MDA:

    Making Your Workplace Accessible

    I work at home; sitting at our dining room table with my laptop and notepads. However, I sit on an office chair with wheels. I have the chair adjusted on “high” to match the table height and to make standing up easier for me. Thumb-drives and other items are within reach and my walker sits nearby. Working from home allows for more accommodation and pacing but as the article states, offices and other workplaces are making great strides in providing accommodation for their employees with disabilities.

    What accommodations have you made to your work space? How has your employer supported your needs? Do you have tips or “lessons learned” to share with us?
