ONLINE: Mental Illness, Intellectual Disabilities and the ADA

Many individuals with an intellectual disability may also have an underlying mental illness.  Some intellectual disabilities are easy to recognize (i.e., Down’s Syndrome).  Others are not.  Trying to identify mental illness is particularly challenging if the individual with an intellectual disability doesn’t know how to communicate needs for a co-occurring underlying mental illness.  This webinar will help employers recognize situations where an employee may be asking for an accommodation under the Americans with Disabilities Act even when they are not “specifically asking for one.”  It will also discuss the interactive process that can be very complicated when dealing with someone with mental and/or intellectual disabilities.
