Abstract:
10% of India's population suffers from learning disabilities. However, the level of awareness required to make spaces conducive for them is extremely low. This translates to the creation of spaces in education and workplaces that are inherently discriminatory towards such individuals. This paper has explored the challenges that people with learning disabilities face at the workplace. It has also looked into solutions that workplaces across the world have adapted and can adapt to that would make work conducive to such individuals. It has also sought to provide contextual policy recommendations that would improve the situation and circumstances that people with learning disabilities face in the workplace in India Non-governmental organizations play a significant role in creating positive change at the grassroots level. However, the improvement of the rate and quality of employment available to individuals with learning disabilities requires much more attention from the government and Industrial bodies to formulate and mandate the enforcement of guidelines that make workplaces more conducive.
