What to Expect

What is an Assistive Technology Assessment?
Since 1995, organisations have been required by the Disability Discrimination Act and then by the Equality Act, to make reasonable adjustments to their systems to allow employees to access them.
Assistive Technology Assessments are one of the best ways you can accommodate the needs of your employees in order to help them work independently. The purpose of the assessment is to determine which Assistive Technology (AT) tools are appropriate for meeting the current and future needs of you or your colleague. This allows you to comply with the legislation and furthermore, ensures all staff can realise their full potential at work.
Our highly trained assessors have a thorough knowledge and expertise in the range of devices and technologies that will enable anyone, regardless of their level of disability, to use their workstation independently. This will enable us to develop a package that precisely suits the individual needs.
Who Needs an Assistive Technology Assessment?
We can help you to effectively manage disability issues at work, therefore, enabling your employees to achieve their full potential.
Assistive technology, whether it is a customised workstation, specialised software, or another type of technology, can provide assistance for a wide range of disabilities such as:
- Hearing loss
- Visual impairment
- Speech and language impairment
- Mobility issues
- Neurological disorders
- Learning difficulties
The goal is to ensure the user is comfortable at their workstation and able to work to their fullest potential. If appropriate, recommendations may be made for AT products. The sort of products we might recommend include mobility aids, hearing and listening aids, ergonomic equipment, seating and positioning aids and specialist computer peripherals.
