Helping people with disabilities achieve and maintain employment is one of our primary activities. We have worked with the California Department of Rehabilitation for almost 20 years and we provide all of the reasonable accommodation assessments and implementations for staff and faculty with disabilities at San Francisco State University. We can provide similar in-depth, high quality services for your company.
It can be a challenge to integrate an employee with non-standard technology or positioning needs into a workplace while maintaining productivity and respecting work rules. We welcome complex situations and always consider the needs of both the employee and the employer in our recommendations.
- When modifying a workstation to accommodate someone's disability, we take pains to reduce the chance that they might develop secondary injuries due to awkward positioning or over-reliance on one part of the body (fingers, hands, vocal chords, etc.).
- We welcome the "tough situations"—sit/stand, working in recline, restricted or no-hand use, limited range of motion, hard-to-implement medical restrictions, etc.
- Our knowledge of assistive technology broadens the number of hardware and software tools and strategies that we can draw upon.
- Our ability to modify or customize equipment helps us offer the best solutions—we are not limited by what is on the market.
- Our broad collection of alternate input devices allows for hands-on trials. We don't recommend anything that the end user has not seen or tried out.
