Featured Job: Software Developer
Quadriplegics with a passion for designing software solutions can find exciting jobs in the software development field. Software development is among the most popular jobs for quadriplegics because it does not require any physical labor and can be performed at a desk using assistive technology and a computer. And, there are companies who are willing to hire creative and dedicated quadriplegics. Microsoft, for instance, is well known for their many jobs for quadriplegics, including those in software development and design.
Accessibility Services, Inc. (ASI) develops customized environmental control units and speech generating devices to help quadriplegics gain independence and achieve their lifelong goals. We play an integral role when seeking gainful employment because the types of quadriplegic assistive technologies we offer can be personalized based on needs and extent of your disability. For instance, a person desiring to become a software developer, but has no use of their hands, may require a special switch or input method such as head tracking or eye gaze.
When it comes to environmental control units and speech generating devices, there is no “one size fits all” answer. ASI can develop a customized solution designed to help you achieve your career goals and objectives. If you are considering a career in software development or any other field, give us a call to see how we can help.
