Effective Compensatory Strategies in the Workplace

Good job performance requires diverse abilities that involve cognitive skills to learn new tasks, attention, memory, and executive function. When supporting a person in the workplace who may struggle with job tasks that may be typical for the workplace, environmental modifications or behavioral strategies can be designed that essentially bypass a persistent impairment or problem area. Designing and applying a compensatory tool or technique will often change the prospect for a person to be the perfect employee in a workplace, where otherwise, they may have not been considered.

Over the two sessions, Norine outlines the basic criteria for consideration of compensatory strategies and review a variety of techniques that may be effective in given situations. Participants are asked to put their thinking caps on as they review the information and provide input, based on their own experiences, of what works and doesn’t work to support persons with disabilities in the workplace!
