“I am paraplegic which means I have mobility challenges, and need a functional and light wheelchair to get around at work,” she explains.
An employment counselor told her about WorkBC Assistive Technology Services, and after doing some research, she decided to apply. She was quickly approved.
“I received a light wheelchair that I am able to transfer in and out of my car which is very helpful for independence,” she says. “I also received a monitor, HDMI cable, keyboard, and keyboard tray to help with work.”
The accommodations have made a big difference in Fisayo’s workday.
“The equipments have helped to ease a lot of stress with mobility [. . .] and I can work much better,” Fisayo says.
“I would absolutely recommend the ATS program to others.”
