Through WorkBC, she found out about the WorkBC Assistive Technology Services program.

In short order, Tianna found access to assistive technology that made her day much easier.

“Assistive Technology Services have provided a custom chair that will help in my future career and while I’m in school. Also [I received] a special cushion for my laptop and a laptop riser with a keyboard and wrist pad,” she explains. “[They] all help with pain, pressure, and posture.”

Tianna says the accommodations “are giving me hope for future employment.”

WorkBC Assistive Technology Services is operated by Neil Squire. Assistive Technology Services are available to individuals who have a work-related barrier due to a disability or a functional limitation. This may include barriers related to traveling to and from the workplace.
