Disability Consulting

Consulting services may include disability assessments, training and education, policy development, assistive technology recommendations, hiring-related questions, workplace inclusion, employee retention, and others.

As a nationally certified Vocational Rehabilitation Counselor in the state of Pennsylvania for over 10 years, I have extensive experience working with individuals with a wide range of congenital and acquired disabilities as well as local high schools, colleges, human service agencies, and employers. My experience has allowed me the unique perspective in understanding the needs and goals of the employers while fostering equal access and inclusivity of the employees.

Below are some key aspects often included in disability consulting work, but it is not an exhaustive list. If you would like to schedule an initial consultation to discuss your individual or company needs, explore potential topic areas, or simply learn more about consulting services, please see the "Contact" section.

  • Accessibility Audits and Assessments: accessibility assessments of physical spaces, digital platforms, products, and services to identify barriers and recommend improvements to make them more inclusive and accessible to people with disabilities.​

This may involve providing guidance on reasonable accommodations, accessible facilities, and accessible communication.

  • Client-Specific Needs: Disability consulting work can be highly customized to meet the specific needs and goals of individual clients, whether they are individuals seeking support or organizations striving to become more inclusive and accessible. Client centered services may include topics ranging from in-school transition, IEPs/504's, post-secondary education, employment, housing, reasonable accommodations, etc.

Overall, disability consulting work plays a crucial role in advancing disability rights, promoting inclusion, and ensuring that people with disabilities have equal access to opportunities, services, and environments. It encompasses a wide range of services aimed at breaking down barriers and creating a more accessible and inclusive society.
