Tough economic times can be beneficial times for assistive technology reuse. Technology is abandoned for many reasons. The webinar will provide an overview of current understanding of technology abandonment and why reuse for vocational rehabilitation (VR) programs and employment settings benefits everyone. Join us to learn more about a recent survey of vocational rehabilitation programs and current practices concerning VR practices, needs, and gaps in AT reutilization. We will also share best practice steps to implement AT reutilization within VR programs. Considering hypothetical costs of associated with reuse, we will also showcase the business case for AT reuse within VR programs. Don't miss this exciting session that will help identify steps employers can take in making sure that assistive technology that is no longer needed does not end up in warehouses or landfills and in the hands of those interested in working.
