Reasonable Accommodation
Definition:

Modifications or adjustments to tasks, environments or to ways things are done, without putting an unfair burden on the organization making these changes, that enable people with disabilities to have an equal opportunity to participate in education, employment, and community. It is important for organizations to have a definition of “Reasonable Accommodation,” so that people with disabilities have a clear understanding of what can be expected should a request for adjustment be made.
