Assistive Technology

What is AT and how does the program work?

We support people by providing financial support to cover a portion of assistive or adaptive aids and devices that will improve their lives.

Any item, piece of equipment, or product system that is used to increase, maintain, or improve functional capabilities of individuals with disabilities. Additionally, it helps them carry out their daily activities in order to uphold a healthy and independent lifestyle.

Here are a few examples:
