If you're at the San Francisco ACS meeting, I suggest you go to the awards symposium.
Sheila Kennedy from UCSD Chemistry Department and the UCSD Office for Students with Disabilities is getting the 2014 CHAS Fawcett Award for their work with student with disabilities in laboratories and giving a talk on the subject.
I suspect they may have some experience that may apply in your particular situation.

I recently got an email from a colleague asking:
"Our department is looking for model policies for students with medical conditions which might limit their participation in the laboratory (such as asthma, pregnancy, allergies, etc.). We're getting a suggestion from "on high" to have a caveat emptor
policy where we just refer students to the SDS's and tell them that they have to make their own decisions in consultation with their physician.
Do you know of any models we might look at for review, consideration, and/or adoption?"
