Changing Face of Technology Hire People with Developmetal Disabilities

Letters and Meetings
Letters of introduction sent to key state officials, department heads and business leaders were followed by meetings to explain the value of hiring people with developmental disabilities to scan records.

Media Coverage
With an article in the Star Tribune, “Workers with disabilities get a boost from digital conversions” (October 6, 2005, D1), attention was drawn to the scanning project for the Department of Human Services where 3.1 million documents were scanned over an 18 month period.

The document imaging program made it possible for the Department to move into its new offices. The huge volume of files scanned for a significant state department had a strong impact on gaining additional scanning projects.
