"Employers don't always know how relatively inexpensive the adaptive technology, the accommodations, are," said Clay Berry, Alphapointe's director of education and rehabilitation.

Unfortunately, Berry said, agencies such as Alphapointe "don't typically engage with folks until after it's too late to save their jobs" by helping with disability accommodations.
"So we're starting from scratch," Berry said.

"Transportation is a disaster," Berry said of sight-impaired workers' ability, in general, to get to jobs.
"All the jobs we hear about in Lenexa and Overland Park are not an option if you live in midtown Kansas City. You hear about new jobs at the old Indian Springs shopping mall. You can't get there. The state line issue is huge. North of the river, south of the river is huge," Berry said.
...
And, quite frankly, Berry said, there's another disincentive for re-employment besides transportation difficulties: Blind and low-vision people may get more income staying home than working.
In Missouri, for example, there's a blind pension of $707 a month that can be taken on top of other entitlements.
"Vision has higher allowable earnings before you lose your disability benefits than other disabilities," Berry said.

"Chad is an exceptional young man," said Clay Berry, Alphapointe's director of education and rehabilitation.
...
The son of Dean and Kim Rohr, Chad first met Berry when Chad enrolled as a 15-year-old in the Student Transitional Employment Program, an eight-week program at Alphapointe.
...
"The next summer, we did some college preparatory work with Chad that centered around adaptive technology to ensure he could use the computer effectively," Berry said.
