President Obama Proclaims October ‘National Disability Employment Awareness Month’. Is Your Workplace Accessible?

President Obama recently proclaimed October 2012 as ‘National Disability Employment Awareness Month.’ In his proclamation, the President stressed the importance of making the disabled part of economic recovery efforts in the United States.

“During National Disability Employment Awareness Month, we recognize the indispensable contributions people with disabilities make in our economy,” he declared “and recommit to building a country where each of us can realize the full extent of our dreams.”

Part of any plan to bring more individuals with disabilities into the nation’s workforce includes taking advantage of available assistive products to establish a more accessible workplace.

Every day, existing products are being improved and new technologies developed that can help people who are blind or have diminished vision, are deaf or hard of hearing, and those who have special needs work more efficiently and effectively in an office environment.

Assistive products can quickly pay themselves off in improved communication and increased productivity for workers. And they give business owners access to the eager and capable, but largely untapped source of employees available in the disabled community.
