Magnify Access believes in education that is inclusive for all learners. We know the importance of equitable access to education and how challenging it can be at times for some learners, particularly learners with disabilities. As a result, we have developed Technology Strategies, a series of programming to support the assessment, training, and resource needs of learners who require accommodations. Some of the areas of focus include technology-based strategies to support reading, organization, writing, notetaking, math, and assessments.
Technology strategies can provide enhanced support for students who benefit from multiple learning styles. For example, students who benefit from simultaneously using visual and auditory processing of information. Or for students presented with challenging or complicated content to read or write. Students who may have disabilities. As well as those who may be English-language learners.
Technology strategies can be used to empower students through universal design for learning principles, accessible across multiple platforms of technology, and easily deployed via free or institution-provided licensing.
Why are Technology Strategies beneficial?

Magnify Access has begun development on the Workplace Accommodation System (W-PAS). This system is a virtual accommodation hub designed to be a secure and confidential repository storing accommodation requests for staff with disabilities. W-PAS is an end-to-end workplace accommodation system meant to support the needs of the worker with a disability while ensuring the employer has adequate information, clarity, and a streamlined method of efficiently providing workplace accommodations.

Magnify Access has developed Synchronise Our Systems (SOS) to support individuals through intentional and personalized digital online solutions and services that help elders, people with disabilities, and everyone else to safely navigate their day-to-day lives. Magnify Access works with you as well as family, friends, and support people to identify where areas of concern exist and what solutions can be implemented to support you and bring a sense of ease to your friends and family.
