Notes accommodation"Many mental health advocates and experts note the parallel between useful accommodations for people with psychiatric disabilities, such as workplace flexibility and an individualized approach to management, and good management practices that would benefit any worker. They assert that adjustments of job demands to the temperament, sensitivities, strengths, weaknesses, and preferences of a valued employee occur frequently." (p. 268)
