What’s Your Squawkers McCaw? Creative Workplace Accommodations – Bev Harp. Bev has an animatronic parrot that she takes with her to work. Early on, one of her co-workers asked her what the bird’s function was, and Bev described how it helped her with regulation, smalltalk etc. She then described a few other autistic people, the accommodations they requested in the workplace, and how denying those accommodations negatively impacted both the autistic person and all the co-workers.
