Tuesday, November 9, 2010


Choosing the appropriate accommodations for an employee with a disability can be a daunting task. The Internet is flooded with products to accommodate limitations when using a computer. But where to begin? How do you know you are getting the right product or setup for your employee? This presentation will provide an overview of the process, ergonomics and assistive technology products that can help you make the right choices in providing accommodations for computer tasks. Case studies will be used to illustrate the methodology.
