The American Chemical Society (1-800-ACS-5558) has an excellent, free  book 
on "Teaching Chemistry to Students with Disabilities".  It is for high  
schools, colleges, universities, and graduate programs.  LSI works with  institutions 
to help them design and renovate science facilities for students  with 
disabilities... Jim

Subject: Laboratory Safety  Policies for Individuals with Disabilities

Dear Group,

Does  anyone have a specific policy or procedure in place for people with  
disabilities working in laboratories? Currently I am looking for a  
policy or procedures for individuals with epilepsy but the language  
would need to be universal and non-discriminatory. If you have such  
information, could you please send me an e-mail at david.gillum**At_Symbol_Here**  
I'm hoping I don't have to re-invent the wheel on this one.

Please  excuse the cross-posting.
