In addition to having a disability, to be protected by the ADA you must be qualified and able to perform the essential functions of the job either with or without reasonable accommodation.

The fact that you need an accommodation does not necessarily mean that you cannot perform the essential functions of the job. You do need to meet the minimum qualifications for the job. This includes education, experience, skills, licenses, or credentials.
