Everyone should have the opportunity to learn. However, those with disabilities are sometimes unintentionally excluded from the same experiences their colleagues have. Ineffective learning experiences can have far-reaching consequences. On a purely practical level, they may not fully absorb the material intended for them. Emotionally, they can leave their session(s) feeling resentful. Legally, the company could be held responsible for non-compliance. In a worst-case scenario, the inadequately trained learner could put their own safety—or the safety of others—at risk.
