Assistive Technology in Employment

Page 1 / Page 2

Technology makes it possible for many people with disabilities to succeed in employment.  Under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), qualified people with disabilities have a right to receive reasonable accommodations that enable them to perform the essential functions of a job and be afforded the same opportunities as a person without a disability.  Among the many possible accommodations an employer may provide are re-arranging a workstation, telecommuting, or furnishing assistive technology.  In addition, the Rehabilitation Act Amendments include "rehabilitation technology" within the range of services state vocational rehabilitation programs provide to maximize individuals' progress in reaching their employment goals.
