“Assistive Technology Tools for Workplace Inclusion”

Presented by: Kristen Russell, OTR, ATP


This presentation will discuss the importance of assistive technology tools in the workplace to help people with disabilities complete their job tasks independently and efficiently. Attendees will learn about assistive technology tools that can assist employees with physical disabilities with using a computer, employees with learning disabilities to perform reading and writing tasks, and employees with executive functioning challenges to keep organized and remember information. Many tools discussed are built into devices employees already have. Attendees will also learn about resources to trial equipment to help find the right tool for the employee, as there are no “one size fits all” accommodations.

As announced during the December breakfast, this clothing drive will run from February 2nd to March 3rd. This is an opportunity to purge closet items while helping others.
