For the workplace

Do you or your business need to make “reasonable adjustments” to meet the needs of employees?”

Do you have additional needs like Dyslexia, Repetitive Strain Injury or Physical Disability that requires alternative ways to access a computer?”

Then AccessAbility Solutions can help you!

  • Advice on the latest technologies
  • Individual IT functional assessment
  • Matching reasonable adjustment to the needs of YOUR company

AccessAbility Solutions also works  with InspireAway  to provide courses  available for your staff and company  on diversity and equal opportunities, The courses can be designed to meet the needs of your organisation. This isn’t just for ICT skills but for a more broader understanding of   such legislation as the Mental Capacity Act, Disability Act and the Equal Opportunities Act . You will be helped in finding  ways to ensure that the needs of people with disabilities can be met within the  workplace. This would help your workplace to be more inclusive for all.  Here are a few suggestions for access and inclusion you may not have considered

RSI – Repetitive Strain Injury/ Muscular Dystrophies  – Speech recognition technologies provide a pain free solution in the workspace and are very accurate for adults. For children this will require more detailed assessment and trialling to assess suitability.

Alternatives to the  mouse inputs –  there are range of different devices that can be used instead of the traditional mouse shape to access the computer.

Alternative Keyboards – keyboards for the visually impaired which have larger keys to onscreen keyboards :-

Some of these keyboards are free to use . The point is are you aware of the accessibilty options open to you?  

Alternative devices – such as the iPad, TabletPc and Android equivalents. Matching the correct solution to the individual user is the role of Myles Pilling, Specialist ICT SEN Consultant. This would be a consultancy role AccessAbility Solutions can perform with your organisation, company, setting.  Contact: myles@acccessability123.onmicrosoft.com

Other aspects are more about the approaches made to people with learning disabilities. Based on current good practice that will empower all staff to have a positive view to disability in order to  “make reasonable adjustments” and consider the needs of the individual with a disability in a 360 degree way our training will ensure that your company and  staff meet the requirements of current legislation .
