Please help us identify assistive technology topics for training and informational materials by completing this survey by March 29, 2013.
Assistive technology helps people with disabilities communicate, hear, see, move, and otherwise function in their daily lives. Assistive technology devices can be used at home, at work, at school, or in the community.
Assistive technology devices can be simple, such as a spoon with a built up handle for easy grasping. Devices can also be complex, such as a computer with speech output. Devices include durable medical equipment. Assistive technology services include evaluation, repair, and training.
