ACED project team wins inclusive design competition for job accommodation and support tool
The Accommodating and Communicating about Episodic Disabilities (ACED) partnership team has been announced first place winner 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.
ACED won the $50,000 grand prize for its Job Demands and Accommodation Planning Tool (JDAPT). It's designed to help people think about the workplace supports they need when they live with a chronic health condition that can cause challenges. Recruiting is currently underway to test the tool.
