What is Assistive Technology (AT)?
Assistive Technology (AT) is any item, device, or piece of equipment used to maintain or improve the independence and function of people with disabilities and seniors, in education, employment, recreation, and daily living activities. AT devices can be “low tech” like a built-up handle on a spoon to improve the ability to grasp, to “high tech” computers controlled with eye blinks. AT devices can be do-it-yourself, or even consumer electronics like home automation solutions that can are more than just a convenience for a person with a disability! AT includes the services necessary to get and use the devices, including assessment, customization, repair, and training.
For initial communication and information dissemination, the AT3 Center has established the About AT listserv for all interested individuals. Please click on the following link to request to be added to this listserv -
