Last Thursday, in support of September Disability Employment Month (new window) in British Columbia, Surrey WorkBC (new window) and Neil Squire Society partnered together to provide an introduction to workplace accommodation and open house for members of the media. We were thrilled to be joined by Richard T. Lee (new window), MLA for Burnaby North who received an overview of what an assistive technology assessement entails with our Occupational Therapists and Assistive Technology Specialists.
Media had a chance to speak one-to-one with occupational therapists and assistive technology specialists to find out what’s involved with an assistive technology assessment, how employers can benefit from hiring people with disabilities, and to learn all about the Neil Squire Society’s Technology@Work program. They also had the chance to speak to a Surrey WorkBC (new window) representative to learn about the breadth of free services available to employers and people with disabilities.
