This is an educational announcement for people with disabilities and/or regional employers on the availability and use of Assistive Technology in the workplace. This video shows staff and students with disabilities at The Sierra Group Academy working with Assistive Technology as they gain skills to be able to go to work or return to work with a disability. It also shows a graduate who is blind and how she is using her Assistive Technology as an Administrative Assistant for a Philadelphia employer.

Viewers will learn how Assistive Technology and strategies may be used as “reasonable accommodations” in the workplace per the Americans with Disabilities Act. The purpose of this PSA is to inform the public about what is possible and therefore stimulate employment for Americans with disabilities.
