Guidelines for Disability Inclusion…Wellness planning guidelines:

1. Goals include employees with disabilities – activities explicitly or unambiguously state that employees with disabilities are included.

2. Planning includes input from employees with disabilities – employees share what makes activities accessible and inclusive.

3. Activities are accessible – activities are conducted in accessible environments.

4. Accommodations are provided - the individual needs of employees are accommodated.

5. Outreach and communication efforts are inclusive – a variety of accessible methods are used to promote and conduct activities (large print, captioning, braille, interpreters.)

Put the person first, not the disability. Example: Mary uses a wheelchair (not confined or bound to a wheelchair). TJ has cerebral palsy (not CP victim)….

8. Follow-up and evaluation collection methods are accessible - include feedback from employees with disabilities.”
