It's all about connecting!
Access to technology for people with disabilities opens up a world of employment opportunities they wouldn't otherwise have, especially in rural areas. With technology, individuals are able to have remote experiences to a greater variety of types of jobs and to specific jobs in their communities through virtual job shadows. They are able to receive interactive training with a group of people from different locations to develop the skills needed for their chosen job from a support staff through remote services. Individuals are able to share screens to receive hands on assistance with developing resumes that they can share with businesses in virtual job fairs. Technology opens the doors for work from home employment opportunities and also supports from an employment services professional. Having access to technology will also allow the individuals to access and set up transportation to and from their places of employment. By having access to technology that opens up the possibilities for successful employment, individuals increase their independence and can live, work, and thrive in their communities.
