Abstract: This paper examines how assistive technology can be utilized in
conjunction with personal assistance services in the workplace. Through case
examples, the authors show how assistive technology can assist an individual
with a disability to become more independent and productive in the workplace.
The impact of disability and environment on assistive technology is discussed.
In addition, the authors review factors influencing the selection and
utilization of assistive technology at the workplace and demonstrate how the
use of assistive technology can lessen an individual's dependence on a personal
assistant while at work.
