Are you an employer, business, or human resource representative seeking solutions and information about the use of Assistive Technology (AT) in the workplace? Are you looking for ideas and examples of how AT is used in the workplace to create work environments that result in more productive employees? — find resources that can be helpful to businesses, non-profit organizations and other employers in the AT for Employer & Business Web Portal.
The RESNA Catalyst Project (www.resnaprojects.org) provides technical assistance to Statewide Assistive Technology Programs, Alternative Financing and Access to Telework Programs, and Protection and Advocacy for Assistive Technology programs.
In 2011, the RESNA Catalyst Project began a new initiative focusing on the use of Assistive Technology (AT) for employment and business solutions. This initiative includes the development of an AT for Employer/Business Web Portal (atconnects.com/employers) designed to provide AT exclusive resources for businesses, employers, and those who work with employers to get people with disability employed.
Specifically, the AT for Employer/Business Web Portal features information on AT solutions in the workplace, finding help to access AT through the AT Act Entities, a consultant data base directory of RESNA Professionals and the services and expertise each offers to employers, publications on AT and Employment, various resources for employers to explore, and the partners who have worked with the RESNA Catalyst Project to create the Portal including the United States Business Leadership Network, Job Accommodation Network, the Council of State Administrators of Vocational Rehabilitation, Southeast TACE, and the U.S. Department of Education, Rehabilitation Services Administration.
The online location of the Portal is housed on the National Public Internet Site for AT (AT Connects), operated by the University of New Hampshire Institute on Disability (atconnects.com/).
