Picture of Amber Keohane

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Amber Keohane.  Amber was a  member of the DCATP Advisory Council for many years.  She was a dedicated advocate for independent living and peer support and had a tremendous impact on the individuals she served.  Amber will be deeply missed and remembered always. Our hearts go out to her family, friends and colleagues. 

The DC Assistive Technology Program is a city-wide program whose goal is to enhance independence, productivity and inclusion for all District residents with disabilities.  

We accomplish this goal by providing education, experience and empowerment in the selection, procurement and use of assistive technology devices and services.  We are here to assist individuals, family members, service providers, government agencies and community organizations.
