Today, using the Internet is a key part of getting and keeping many jobs. There are accessibility standards for websites and online tools to make sure that people with physical and/or sensory disabilities can use them. However, the same does not exist for people with intellectual disabilities. As a result, there are barriers preventing people with cognitive disabilities, including autistic people, from finding jobs, performing their jobs well, or advancing in their chosen careers.

 

The Autistic Self Advocacy Network, in conjunction with the Partnership on Employment and Accessible Technology and the US Department Of Labor’s Office of Disability Employment Policy, invites you to join an online conversation about the internet, cognitive disability, and workers with cognitive disabilities. We are seeking information about problems you may have had when using online tools and websites for job-related activities, and we are also interested in your ideas on how to improve these technology tools. The conversation runs until December 20th.

 

Participants are encouraged to think about 2 main questions:

  •  
  • *How can websites be improved to make it easier to apply for jobs or do work for your job?
  • *What ideas do you have for making online job-related tools easier to use for everyone?

 

We want to hear from you! Tell us about your experiences using the internet to find and do your job, what barriers you faced, and what solutions you would like to see. We’ll use your answers to develop recommendations for online cognitive accessibility. All ideas are welcome, and joining the conversation is very simple. Just click the link below:
