Accommodations

CAP offers several ways to learn about the assistive technology available to improve an individual's capabilities. These technologies, which can be used to maintain, increase, or enhance an individual's job performance, are available to accommodate people with all types of disabilities. This includes both apparent and hidden disabilities. To find the most appropriate solution(s), you may choose to search the CAP site for specific assistive technology, browse by disability category, or request a needs assessment. Within each disability category there are product categories that contain an array of assistive technology products. Due to the nature of tecnology and continuous innovation, CAP cannot list all possible accommodations that are available. However, the products listed present a variety of unique features to accommodate an array of limitations and are most often certified for use on federal agencies' networks. While CAP has a variety of Assistive Technology solutions available on the website, individuals are not limited to those items. Alternative items may be requested from CAP and will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis to ensure the validity of the request, that it is the most reasonable and appropriate option, and that CAP is able to procure that item under Federal Acquisitions Regulations. Additional justification or information may be requested to ensure the requested option meets CAP's requirements.
