Is it expensive to provide assistive technology on the job?

Often businesses believe that providing an accommodation or assistive technology to individuals with disabilities is very costly. However, data collected from the Job Accommodation Network and a study by DePaul University show that the cost of accommodating workers with disabilities was minimal. Types of accommodations could include screen enlarging on a computer or use of a sign language interpreter. While each case needs to be determined individually, most accommodations are under $500.

In addition, there are tax incentives available to employers to help employers pay for accommodations and other avenues for funding for assistive technology.
