What is assistive technology?

Assistive technology is any kind of technology and/or tool that can be used to enhance the functional independence of a person with a disability. Often, for people with disabilities, accomplishing daily tasks such as communicating with others, going to school or work, or participating in activities can be a challenge. Assistive Technology (AT) devices are tools to help overcome those challenges and enable people living with disabilities to enhance and have access to a quality of life, that may otherwise not be known, and lead more independent lives.

The mission of this blog is to serve as a voice of a constant researcher in the field of educational and assistive technologies so that the best products, strategies and services may be located easily, in hopes that they will then be delivered, taught and used to better the lives of people with disabilities.


This blog has not been updated in about 6 months causing many of the links to be broken. My apologies if this causes you frustration. I know it has caused me a lot. I am dealing with life's many gifts right now, I lost my home and business in the Camp Fire, but I have decided to continue with the blog. Please be patient. I will be adding, taking away and correcting in a few months.
