Focus on Assistive Technologies

I offer 30-minute webinars on assistive technologies, employment accommodation, and related topics over Zoom. These sessions are free.

Everybody on my mailing list receives invitations. To be added to my mailing list, email me.

I'm currently offering sessions spotlighting "life-hacks" (customizations) as accommodations: modifications that enable employees with disabilities to work productivity, comfortably, accurately, and safely.


1. Introduction to Life-Hacks

Tuesday 21 May 2024
1:00 – 1:30 p.m. Eastern Time

If you can only attend one session, this is it: a "crash-course" on life-hacks as accommodations. I introduce three categories of things that can be created, modified, and tweaked, and give surprising examples of each.


2. Physical and Environmental Life-Hacks

Tuesday 28 May 2024
1:00 – 1:30 p.m. Eastern Time

Deep-dive into the art of making physical objects, altering physical objects, and modifying the environment. You may be astonished by the simplicity of some of the examples. In one case, the cost to implement the solution was zero.


3. Software Customizations

Tuesday 4 June 2024
1:00 – 1:30 p.m. Eastern Time

Software customization is an extremely effective, yet underused, way to accommodate. I share examples of modifications that bridge the gap between a job task and an individual need (physical, cognitive, or learning). In one case, an employee was able to complete a task for the first time, quickly and easily. Creating this simple software hack took five minutes, and saves hours of drudgery every day.


Intended Audiences

These sessions are geared to anyone involved in employment accommodation, assistive technologies, and accessibility:

Although these sessions are not technical, they may pique the interest of technical folks.


Joining a Session is Easy

There's no pre-registration. About four days before each session, everybody on my mailing list will receive a Zoom invitation. If you're not on my mailing list, write me.
