JAN May Be Your Student's New BFF

It’s Election Day. We hope that if you haven’t yet, you will get to a polling site and make your voice heard by casting your vote.

With today’s Tuesday’s Tip, we want to point you to a great resource you may not have explored. The Jobs Accommodations Network (JAN) offers free, confidential and practical solutions that help people with disabilities enhance their employability. Bolstered by tips from JAN, you and your students can show employers how they can benefit from the talents of your students with disabilities.

JAN’s Searchable Online Accommodation Resource (SOAR) allows you and your students to explore various accommodation options in work and educational settings.

Another great feature on the JAN website is the A to Z listings of disabilities and accommodations. You can search by disability, limitation, work-related function, topic, and accommodation. JAN's A to Z may not address every situation, but as you explore the site, you will find it very beneficial to your students as they plan for employment.
