Assistive Technology (AT) is any device that helps a person with a disability do the things they want to do. AT comes in all shapes and sizes. What matters most is what you are able to do with it. Technology is integrated within many aspects of daily life, including education, independent living, employment, and social interaction. The idea behind Assistive Technology is to increase a person’s independence and community connections.
Technology is constantly advancing, and fortunately, it’s becoming more inclusive as it evolves. While there are far too many assistive devices, apps, tools, and technologies to cover in one list, we have some resources below to get you started.
