Creating an Inclusive Work Environment Through the Use of Mainstream Technologies – 60 minutes
In this presentation, we'll explore the ways in which the power of everyday technology can be harnessed to support employees with diverse strengths and needs. Everyday technology, or "mainstream" technology, is readily available, affordable, and can provide practical solutions to the challenges faced by individuals with disabilities and their employers. Participants in this presentation will leave with resources and strategies that can be easily implemented in the workplace. In addition, we will spend some time discussing specialized technologies that can be utilized to support individuals with more complex needs.
