What Is Assistive Technology?
Assistive technology (AT) promotes greater independence by enabling people to perform tasks they are unable to accomplish or have great difficulty accomplishing.
Assistive technology allows individuals with disabilities to function independently in the community and in educational and employment settings.
An assistive technology device is any item, piece of equipment or product system, whether acquired commercially modified or customized that is used to increase maintain or improve the functional capabilities of individuals with disabilities. (29 U.S.C. Sec 2202(2)).
AT devices must be accompanied by AT services which assist an individual with a disability in the selection, purchase or use of an assistive technology device.
