New Horizons Un-Limited works to assist individuals on a one-to-one basis to grant independence and self-sufficiency. We are the community member who will take the time to address an individualís needs in computer skills, or office skills, to access the Internet, fill out a form or research community resources.
When you make a decision to automate your business or program, remember to plan for how a community member with physical, hearing or visual impairments will still be able to contact your business or program. Remember that a person may not have access to a computer or a phone, or the devices may not be usable due to an individualís particular disability. Offer alternatives to automated systems. Try to simplify rather than make a process more complicated. Outreach to those in the community for whom you would like to develop better access and extend a welcome strategy for people with various abilities. Your business will find new growth!
