Adaptive technology is a set of tools or products created to help people with disabilities in order for them to work efficiently and productively. It is related to assistive technology, which consists of products and services that would allow people with disabilities to use existing technology to accomplish tasks.
Why is it Important to the IT Professional?
Technology should help everyone do his or her own work and be more independent. Disabilities should not hinder people from being a contributing member of the workforce. What’s more, the law states that employers should not discriminate against people with disabilities and that they should make reasonable adjustments to accommodate these people.
