People with disabilities have a variety of limitations that interfere with their ability to perform daily activities. In some cases, limitations cannot be overcome without the assistance of another person. This type of assistance is called Personal Assistance Services (PAS).
For some people with disabilities, PAS may be needed to successfully maintain gainful employment. Such PAS may include assistance getting ready for work, getting to and from work, meeting personal needs in the workplace, and performing job functions.
This publication discusses PAS in the workplace. It provides a definition of PAS; information about using PAS to accommodate people with sensory, cognitive, mental health, and motor impairments; a discussion about PAS and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA); and a list of resources for additional information.
