What is a reasonable accommodation? 

It is an adjustment or modification made to a job or the workplace or the usual manner or circumstances of performing the job that allows an applicant or employee with a disability to successfully apply for a job, perform the duties of the job, or enjoy the benefits and privileges of employment.  Reasonable accommodation also applies to the application process.
