WorkOne Assistive Technology
As part of Disability Awareness Month, the DWD and its WorkOne partners offer workstations that contain assistive technology designed to help Hoosiers with disabilities in their search for gainful employment. These workstations can be found at twelve WorkOne Career Centers throughout the state, with nine more being added by the end of the year. WorkOne assistive technology workstations include adjustable workstations, articulating arm supports, large print keyboards, and ultra HD video magnifier.
