The purpose of this chapter is not on the varieties of the availability of assistive technologies (AT) and their usages based on individuals' specified disability, so that individuals who require the usage of ATs can be of equal playing field compared to those individuals who do not require the usage of ATs. For information regarding AT and the state of AT in the past, present, and future in the United States, ADA and the like refer to Tran's article titled “Assistive Technology.” The purpose of this chapter is beyond the coverage of Tran's “Assistive Technology” article, such that the purpose of this article is on the end results that AT could provide and contribute to the diverse workforce, and the role AT play in relations to workforce development—from an international perspective.
