Abstract: Results from preliminary studies have indicated that locating appropriate information on how to accommodate people with disabilities in the workplace can be a difficult and time consuming task. To help improve this situation research is being conducted to contribute to a comprehensive computer system for managing disabilities in the workplace. This is being done by using an integrated assessment of a person’s abilities combined with the requirements of a job to then identify workplace solutions or advice on how to overcome barriers, ultimately working towards the creation of an expert system of reasonable accommodations. This paper outlines the ongoing development of a solutions database for an existing assessment system, AbilityMatch.
