Computers are effective tools for increasing productivity and reducing errors. Many employers expect computer users to achieve a certain level of efficiency. Workers with disabilities can sometimes have a difficult time maintaining the expected level of productivity and accuracy– creating a gap relative to the employer expectations. This presentation will increase awareness of advanced ergonomic and computer-based productivity solutions that can be tailored to the individual's job tasks to reduce or eliminate this productivity gap. Disabled workers with physical impairments, sensory impairments, cognitive impairments and learning disabilities benefit from these solutions. The presenter discusses case studies which show the effectiveness of these solutions for computer-based operations.

Learning Objectives:
Identify work tasks/environments that require advanced ergonomic and productivity solutions
Define mainstram and customized solutions
Discuss case studies which demonstrate the effectiveness of custom solutions
