“Given the nature of our role and responsibilities in our County, the work can be very demanding and needs to be done with integrity, honesty and accuracy,” says Alameda County District Attorney Nancy O'Malley. “Our employees have been incredibly successful in every task they take on. They are productive members of our community and essential assets to this  office.”

  • Providing reasonable accommodation support for the employer to ensure the individual can successfully meet the employer's requirements.
  • Assisting supervisors and co-workers with questions and concerns and ways to work with individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
  • Supporting individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities to grow and learn new job tasks and skills in order to better themselves and the company they work for.
