Technology Levels Field For Those with Disabilities

Time and time again we see that access to technology continues to grow through Innovations Waivers and other allowances through insurance and other measures. This access is proving fruitful for those with disabilities and continues to level the playing field in the academic and professional realms. Whether an individual was born with a disability or developed on through childhood by an accident or through genetics, life goes on, but the difficulties continue. For Andrew Olivier, a broken back as a child lead to paralysis from the neck down due to fractured spinal cord.
