Apr 5, 2013

Hi folks. Welcome to “Accessibility Minute”, your weekly look at Assisitive Technology—those clever tools and devices designed to help people who have difficulties with vision, mobility, hearing or other special needs.

Many times assistive technology is used for the purpose of going to school or performing job functions.  Established by a federal law in 1973, Vocational Rehabilitation (which is  sometimes called the Bureau of Rehab Services) provides funding and services to assist with that process. If you feel that your disability is preventing you from working, you should consider contacting your local vocational rehabilitation services agency. With the assistance they provide you may be able to develop a plan to work and thereby increase your independence.  Check our show notes for more information.
