Abstract

The UK WES-RC is a structured interview tool to identify work-related barriers and formulate solutions to these. It can be administered anywhere, it addresses a broad range of workplace barriers (in addition to work station and task barriers), and it was designed for all types of disabilities. The WES-RC can be administered through either a face-to-face or telephone interview. After collecting background information about their employment, the administrator helps the client identify work barriers using the WES checklists, to prioritize these barriers and form solutions for those the client considers the most significant barriers. The UK WES-RC is adapted from the original WES-RC developed by Prof Saralynn Allaire, University of Boston (Allaire and Keysor 2009).
