Hey there! Welcome to Accessibility Minute, your weekly look at Assistive Technology, those clever tools and devices designed to help people who have difficulties with vision, mobility, hearing or other special needs!
AbleNet is a "world leader in assistive technology, curriculum, and services to help individuals with disabilities lead productive and fulfilling lives."  One of the company's newest products is Sidekick, which is a mouse adapter for iOS devices.
Sidekick is the first plug-and-play adapter that allows users to use almost any USB Type A mouse with their iOS device.  Simply connect your mouse to Sidekick, plug the adapter into your iOS device, and you're ready to go!
Sidekick is currently going through Apple's certification process; it is expected to be available as early as the fall.
