Synapse ADA Presentation Materials
Synapse has developed a completely integrated
menu-driven full compliance workstation which answers ADA requirements for reasonable
accommodations. Our ADA workstations solve hardware compatibility issues. Synapse ADA
workstations meet the needs of individual employees with one or more disabilities, and of
multiple employees with varying disabilities who use the same workstation. Our
workstations can be configured to address the unique needs of your library, special-needs
laboratory or vocational setting.
Special Needs Laboratory
This the ideal workstation to start or augment your
special-needs laboratory. Custom configurations can be designed to serve all populations
requiring access or mitigation.

address issues of the special-needs population, with the goal of increasing proficiency in
the use of assistive technology and assessment practices.
