Re: new user

Hi faqir20,
So u needed to know the effects of LD on an individual at work?? Well I suppose it will be difficult for both, the employer and the employee. Initial things for employment such as, searching for one and then going through the interview processes, getting the offer, training would be one of the difficult phases for any person with LD. But i guess, eventually the biggest hurdle would be to actually keep that job. what do u think? So i think, in this case, the employer holds a great responsibility. Let me know if that helps. g2g. take care & good luck.

sorry, i didn't seem to have paid attention to that part of the question. anyway, umm well first of all, both the employer and the employee need to understand each other. If thats possible, then the employer can possibly make arrangements to accomodate the employee and overcome such disabilities. Things like flexible work assignments, timers to realize how much time is spent on tasks, word proccesssors or voice recorders, etc can help the employee to a great extent. Doing one thing at a time, and asking co-workers or supervisers to schedule meetings in order to minimize interruptions wil help too. Even taking frequent and short breaks can be accounted for.

yeah, i hope i have given u some insights to what u were seeking for. help it helped. arright take care then
