• Assistive Technology Locating funding often creates a barrier to acquiring needed assistive technology (AT) devices and services. While ATP does not directly fund the purchase of devices, it is a resource for individuals with disabilities and their family members, school staff, service providers, counselors, employers, and others to:
    (1) Obtain information about AT and appropriate funding sources;
    (2) Borrow equipment on a trial basis (or device repair);
    (3) Purchase selected equipment or software at discount prices;
    (4) Consult with specialists regarding accessibility issues;
    (5) Receive training; and
    (6) Receive on-site support at home, in schools and on the job.

  • Returning to Work Mike's life changed when he
    was diagnosed with Transvere Myelitis.
    "I never lost positive attitude about
    things to accomplish", Mike stressed.

    That became apparent as he began to work with
    VR Senior Rehabilitation Specialist Frankie Charles
    and Assistive Technology Technology Specialist
    Desirae Vallier.
    Mike was determined to return to work and worked
    to beat the odds
    and play the hand he was dealt.
    Watch Mike's video to see how he returned to work
    and the technology he uses to independently perform
