At Applied Development, we empower people of all abilities and advocate for employees with diverse abilities. Sections 504/508 Disability Compliance Services of the Rehabilitation Act allows us to put this commitment into action. Sections 504/508 Disability Compliance requires that Federal agencies provide equal access to electronic and information technology and offer reasonable accommodations for individuals with disabilities. We offer direct compliance services including Sign Language Interpretation, CART Transcription, and Reader Services. Our Disability Program Management services help programs focused on diversity, equal opportunity, disability, and inclusion with management and support to ensure that agencies comply with the Rehabilitation Act and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). We make corporate, education, and government clients ideal employers for people with disabilities.
We take special care to bring passionate people onto our team. Every employee recognizes our clients’ humanity and attends to their needs with compassion, joy, and professionalism. We strive to facilitate communication, so that every client can trust Applied Development to help convey and receive messages as intended.
