ICAN AT4ALL - ARKANSAS Assistive Technology
ICAN AT4ALL is Arkansas’ statewide assistive technology program designed to make technology available and accessible for everyone who needs it. Assistive technology (AT) is any kind of device or tool that helps people learn, work, communicate and live more independently. AT can be very simple and inexpensive, like a modified knife and fork, or it can be very sophisticated and costly, like a computerized speech device.
ICAN stands for Increasing Capabilities Access Network and AT4ALL is our philosophy—assistive technology for everyone! ICAN AT4ALL offers a number of services to help Arkansans of all ages find the AT they need for home, school, work and getting around in the community.
ICAN AT4ALL's services are available to all Arkansans with disabilities without regard to age, disability, income, geographic area, or eligibility for any other program. Family members, professionals, educators, employers, therapists, and the public are also welcomed to contact ICAN AT4ALL for information, training and other services.
Many devices are available for loan to individuals and agencies. Try-out equipment before buying, find a device to use while another is being repaired. or borrow equipment for use in a temporary time of need. All of the equipment available for loan is listed on our website through the AT4ALL Equipment page. Recycled devices are available to Arkansans with disabilities. There are disability, geographic, financial or other criteria that must be met. All available equipment is listed on the AT4ALL Equipment page. Available devices can also be viewed at the ICAN AT4ALL Clearinghouse. A note from a therapist or doctor may be required for certain equipment to assure it is consistent with individual needs. While recycled devices are generally available at no cost, a donation may be requested to help cover the cost of parts required to make the device operational, like a battery pack for a power wheelchair.
