The DORS Assistive Technology (AT)team was essential to Josh's success:
“Getting through school with a new injury, I had to reevaluate everything…how I’d be in school, out of school, I had no idea…technology opened the door for me.”
He uses several forms of AT, including a scanner to make electronic versions of his books, and then read the books on his iPad. The iPad allowed him to take notes.
“The WTC [DORS’ Workforce & Technology Center] team showed me what was possible…they were always willing to help me.”
