We advocate for individuals to have access to, and receive, helpful assistive technology.An assistive technology (AT) device is any item, piece of equipment, or product system, whether acquired commercially off the shelf, modified, or customized, that is used to increase, maintain, or improve functional capabilities of individuals with disabilities.

An assistive technology (AT) service is any service that directly assists an individual with a disability in the selection, acquisition, or use of an assistive technology device.

AT can allow individuals with disabilities to be more independent and successful at work and school.

Our agency helps people to access assistive technology by:

  • Advocating for individuals to receive the AT they need
  • Providing information and referrals to help people get started with AT
  • Helping individuals to appeal denials for AT
