Totally random thought but I wonder how much accomodation anyone could expect if instead of having pedophobia they had a phobia about being around blacks or someone of the opposite gender? Further random thought, did this woman ever try to get some counselling for her phobia? I know counselling can't solve everything but given her career choice and that she knew she had this problem since sometime in the '90s I would have expected there to be some mention that she'd made an effort on her own to try to deal with this.

If there was a legitimate reason that black people were segregated from white people and there were many jobs dealing with just the white people? I would say it would be reasonable to assign that person to the white group.

The most successful forms of treatment for phobias tend to combine physical relaxation techniques with a graduated exposure to the phobic stimulus (first imagining it, then being in a big room with one of it at the other end, etc).

I suspect that the 'graduated exposure' bit is probably tricky to do with children.
