Examination modification for an office clerk with multiple sclerosis

Disability and functional restriction:

He has a chronic inflammatory disease of the central nervous system (multiple sclerosis) with a marked walking disability and impaired fine motor ability. His hands shake so much that he is unable to do written work.

Training and job:

He completed training as an office clerk.

Examination modification:

He is motivated, socially integrated and his intellectual abilities are well trained. His work and targeted performance until now during the training confirm that he is undoubtedly able to solve problems satisfactorily to very well. Therefore he could very successfully pass the final examination.
To equalise his chances and compensate for his disadvantages, the Examination Board of the Chamber of Commerce and Industry (IHK) allowed him to read and answer the examination questions directly on the compter. Because of his disability he received an examination time increase of 10%. A prerequisite for completing the examination questions on the PC was that the questions were made available to him in a suitable form on a disc.

Assistive devices used:

input devices for computers
input software
computer pointing devices

Support:

The arising examination costs could be 100% subsidised by the Integration Office.
