The University of Virginia is currently seeking an IT-Assistive Technology Specialist (AT Specialist) to work with the Student Disability Access Center (SDAC). SDAC is the University’s designated access agency for students with disabilities, providing services to two groups of students: those who have been previously diagnosed with a disability; and those who have never been diagnosed, but find themselves struggling academically, and seek advice and support to address their difficulties.

The AT Specialist will be responsible for coordinating all aspects of assistive technology implemented and deployed through SDAC and serve as the subject matter expert for SDAC in matters relating to assistive technology, technology accessibility, and technology accessibility standards. The successful candidate will recommend, evaluate, install and maintain assistive technology adopted by SDAC designated as preferred AT accommodations and conduct research for IT specific solutions at the request of the SDAC team.

The successful candidate will be expected to assist students with the installation and use of the assistive technologies provided for them as an accommodation. In addition, and working with the SDAC team, this person will be responsible for the development and maintenance of online materials providing guidance and instruction for the use of these technologies.

In cooperation with other SDAC team members, the successful candidate will provide direct support for the creation of accessible course materials, including the creation of Braille and tactile graphics documents as well as captioning services for video, audio materials and in-person events.
