Ergonomic and Physical Access
Professionals who work with clients who have disabilities, counselors, therapists and job developers are invited to attend a presentation about effective ways of working with people who have disabilities that include limited mobility and dexterity. This session covers a broad category from wheelchair users, to amputees, those who have arthritis, back injury, seizure disorders, heart conditions, diabetes, and any sort of condition where physical access to goods and services of a Resource Room will require accommodations. In particular, see and try out assistive technology for access to computers and mobile devices. Preventive ergonomics, workstation adjustments, disability awareness, ADA concerns and more are important parts of this topic. Short videos, simulation exercises, and handouts make this session lively. This session includes content about the use of mobile devices and cell phones to help communication needs and the growing use of speech recognition technology.
