Answer:
A reasonable accommodation is any change in the work environment or in the way a job is performed that enables a person with a disability to enjoy equal employment opportunities. There are three categories of "reasonable accommodations":
  1. Changes to a job application process
  2. Changes to the work environment or to the way a job is usually done
  3. Changes that enable an employee with a disability to enjoy equal benefits and privileges of employment (such as access to training).
