My software company recently employed an individual who is blind. I learned of his disability the night before he started working for us, and being the supervisor for this new employee, I immediately became concerned about the decision to hire him, not because he I doubted his qualifications for the position, but for his safety in and around our buildings. I telephoned ATI to talk about my concerns, after all, how was I going to always be available to take him to and from his workstation, or to make sure no one placed a trashcan too close to the walkway? I needed to know where I could buy a screenreading program and braille signs NOW and have them installed TONIGHT …… oh my gosh, the list went on and on.
ATI was great! The Specialist listened to ALL my worries, and then asked me a few questions; such as will the gentleman use a cane or a guide dog at the office? What computer accommodations is he already familiar with and does he read braille?
What did she mean DOES HE READ BRAILLE?! The man’s blind, of course he reads braille – doesn’t he? I learned so much about how to prepare for welcoming our new employee into our “family” from her, and while I still didn’t sleep that night worrying about making everything perfect for his first day, I was more educated and now I understand the importance of providing disability awareness training to my employees and our hiring managers. – Steve
