Episodic Disabilities and Work
Many employers still hold the view that disability is a limitation that is ongoing and more-or-less permanent. This may not be the case for those living with episodic disabilities who experience periods of good health between periods of limitations or illness. In addition, these periods of wellness and disability are unpredictable. As a consequence, a person may need workplace accommodations from an inclusive and disability-confident employer.

The Episodic Disabilities and Work training is designed for the workplace to provide an overview of episodic disabilities, information that promotes inclusion, best practices for becoming disability-confident employers, and an opportunity to hear from someone with lived experience of working with an episodic disability.

LEARNING OUTCOMES
After the training, participants will be able to:
• Understand the basics of episodic disabilities and the impact these conditions may have on the lives of their staff and co-workers
• Integrate common workplace accommodation requests into day-to-day activities
• Articulate ways employers can be inclusive of employees with episodic disabilities
