Job-Related Assistive Technology “Explain how the services of each organization may
provide work-related assistance to a specific individual with whom you are working.”
The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) unlocked new prospects for persons with
disabilities and placed new tasks on companies, transportation and communications
organizations, state and local administrations, and public places. As such, there have been
various organizations which provide work-related assistive technology services. First, the Helen
Keller National Center for Bind-Deaf Youths and Adults offers research, training, and
technology-based assistance for people who have vision and hearing problems. In particular, the
healthcare facility offers magnifiers and special aid glasses for people with low vision. This
technology helps the individual worker to function normally without straining. Also, the
healthcare facility offers workplace environmental modifications to accommodate the visually
impaired. This is true but does the Helen Keller Center in New York offer services in your area?
If so how do you access these services. Please relate the services to a specific individual and
how these services would help him/her on the job with specific job functions. Secondly, RJ
Cooper & Associates, Inc. provides computer software which helps individuals with amputated
hands to click on the various functions on the computer. Such software includes the Smart-Click
which compliments the available joystick which in turn enables the disabled person to work
efficiently with work computers. Please relate the services to a specific individual and how these
services would help him/her on the job with specific job functions.
Thirdly, the American Foundation for the Blind provides various workplace-related
technologies which aid people with various disabilities. For instance, the BookSense XT is a
compacted and lightweight, convenient DAISY player. Its built-in text-to-speech engine
provisions a wide variety of electronic documents. The gadget enables completely blind people

to gain access to various instructions with limited help. Please relate the services to a specific
individual and how these services would help him/her on the job with specific job functions.
Fourthly, the AbilityHub offers various products for the deaf. In particular, the iCommunicator
provides real-time interpretations of the verbally communicated information. The
iCommunicator translates spoken messages to manuscript, speech to video sign language, or
speech to made voice, letting a deaf worker hear every message or instruction. The product also
includes dictionaries and thesaurus for quick word search. Please relate the services to a
specific individual and how these services would help him/her on the job with specific job
functions..
Additionally, GeorgiaTech Assistive Technology provides various assistive devices
which mostly improve the performance to people with various disabilities. In particular, the most
recent and applicable for people with limb-based disabilities enabling them to drive. The Digidrive technology allows them to drive a vehicle with the use of a joystick installed at the driver’s
seat. This technology allows them to move to and from work easily. This is Georgia’s Assistive
Technology Act program which provides services to people who live in Georgia. California has
its own program (http://abilitytools.org/about/about-at.php) which you need to investigate and
answer the same questions as you have with the other programs.
