Assistive Technology Assessments

Our Assistive Technology Professionals will conduct assistive technology assessments in order to evaluate the client’s functional needs, and their specific work tasks. An effective assistive technology assessment leads to an increased ability to work, and reduces workplace barriers and symptom-aggravating factors. Assistive Technology Assessments can be carried out in any work environment, including home offices. Comprehensive reports with specific equipment and service accommodations are provided.
