Interviewing people with disabilities should not be any different than interviewing non-disabled people. However, interviewers need to be sensitive to disability limitations. This is critical because the human resources (HR) team needs to be acknowledged of the different challenges a job seeker with a disability confronts. Allow the person with a disability to educate you as to any assistance he or she may need- not the medical diagnosis or condition.
In some cases, an applicant may not disclose their disability at the time of application in order to avoid potential discrimination. Because of this, it is recommended that all applicants proceeding to interview, not just those who advise they have a disability, are asked whether they require any adjustments or assistance to participate in the interview.
People with disabilities use a variety of transportation services when traveling.
When scheduling an interview, be aware that the person may be required to make a transportation reservation 24 hours in advance of the interview. Provide the interviewee with an estimated time of duration of the interview so that he or she can schedule necessary transportation for his or her return trip at the end of the interview appointment.
