The goal of the site is to improve the quality of life for people with disabilities around the world by making them aware of all adaptive options available to them. This internship could be an excellent experience-gaining experience for someone in TR or OT as it would give the candidate a rich exposure to many of the adaptive solutions available in the marketplace. Your mission would be: 1) Surf the internet to try and identify adaptive gear and disability-related travel destinations 2) Compile the products and contact info into an activity-based database, attaching as many relevant metatags as possible 3) Reach out to the manufacturers with a form letter explaining what we are doing and asking for permission to use their images on our site. Time limits and time commitments are flexible, but preferably the initial push would be completed by the end of March 2016.
