One factor influencing the integration of people with disabilities into the workforce is the varying degree of effectiveness with which these people use NICTs. To solve this problem, people with disabilities must learn to use NICTs from an early age. NICTs, or adaptive aids, must become extensions of the body for people with disabilities.
Continuing computer education centres adapted to each disability must be set up quickly. NICTs are tools for accessing information, and continuing education is a forum for discussion. Continuing education services by type of disability must be associated with existing organizations.
Few university programs are up to date on what is available in terms of integrating people with disabilities, even with respect to basic methodologies. For instance, there are no programs to train adaptive technology technicians or engineers. This causes a problem in terms of training trainers, as people with university education are the future institutional trainers for people with disabilities.
