Many people with physical and/or cognitive disabilities are not able to work or attend college to prepare for a career. Our Rehabilitation Engineering Technologist can evaluate a person’s needs for assistive hardware, assistive software, physical modifications, and make recommendations to allow a person with a disability to return to work or school. The evaluations may include computer access, environmental control systems, low vision aids, ergonomics, job site visits to evaluate physical changes to the work area and rural rehabilitation services to farmers with disabilities.

The Easterseals Rehabilitation Center offers Augmentative Alternative Communication (AAC) services to individuals with congenital or acquired disabilities who struggle to use speech as their primary means of communication. We can provide an initial evaluation to determine the most appropriate AAC approaches, devices, or apps, as well as consultation with other members of theEasterseals Assistive Technology Department (OT, PT, Rehab Engineer and the Seating/Mobility Specialist). Individuals may also receive communication training and therapy, as well as receive assistance with the process of obtaining devices for trials or submitting proposals for purchase through their medical coverage resources. We also make every effort to collaborate with others involved in the individual’s care (i.e., family members, other therapists, school personnel, or employers) to ensure successful use of AAC in all areas life.

Many people with disabilities desire to remain at home but may have difficulty with home access, transfers or activities of daily living due to physical limitations. Our Rehabilitation Engineering Technologist can evaluate a person’s home environment and make recommendations for home modifications. The modifications can include wheelchair ramps, platform lifts, accessible showers, kitchen adaptations, and many other types of modifications. The modified home environment can allow a person with a disability to remain living safely, functionally and comfortably at home.
