Reasonable accommodation

Persons with disabilities encounter a variety of barriers – the absence of a sign-language interpreter, for instance – which interfere with their ability to participate in the life of society on an equal basis with others. It is therefore necessary, in individual cases, for measures to be taken to prevent this. "Reasonable accommodation" is the UN CRPD's term for these specific, case-based measures. The National CRPD Monitoring Mechanism is strongly advocating the need for the concept of reasonable accommodation to be more firmly anchored in legislation in Germany.
