ACED team wins inclusive design competition for the Job Demands and Accommodation Planning Tool (JDAPT)
The ACED (Accommodating and Communicating about Episodic Disabilities) project team has taken the top prize in a competition called Inclusive Design Challenge: Support at Work. The competition, the second of the MaRS Innovation Challenges series and co-sponsored by CIBC, is aimed at finding solutions that improve support at work for persons with disabilities. The team won the competition for its Job Demands and Accommodation Planning Tool (JDAPT). The tool is designed to help people think about the workplace supports they need when they live with a chronic health condition. Recruiting is still ongoing to evaluate the tool.
