Environmental Accomodations

Environmental accommodations are those forms of assistive technology that allow a person with a disability to monitor and control their environment.  Some of these accommodations are structural and are not included in this tool.  Electronic tools, however, are included.

  • Alerting systems inform a person with a disability of events that should be responded to immediately.  This includes doorbells and fire warnings, among others.
  • Accommodations for functional activities allow a person with a disability to communicate from room to room, to call for help, and a wide range of other things that the person wants to do.
  • Monitoring systems allow a person to see who is outside the door, or what is happening in a child's room.
  • A person who lives with a disability may have an even more complex life than a person without a disability, and reminder systems can help assure that the person gets to appointments on time.
