Accommodating and Retaining Educators with Disabilities

August 4, 2022

A recent case study by the Employer Assistance and Resource Network (EARN) looks at the role workplace accommodations play in keeping teachers with disabilities. The case study features, Dianna Ivey, a teacher at Manchester, VT’s Elementary Middle School. She has been teaching for 20 years and was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis 14 years ago. Since then, Dianna’s disability has changed, as has the education field. A greater understanding of the importance of accommodating educators with disabilities has allowed her to remain at work and be successful, including during a global pandemic, when educators were critically needed.
