Assistive Technology Services

Assistive Technology is any device or adaptation that enables a person with a disability to perform everyday tasks and interact with other people. Our goal is to support people to access readily available technology that can be used as inexpensively and as efficiently as possible. Through collaboration, our occupational therapists and speech therapists work to maximize a person’s functional skills so that they can successfully participate in their community.
