"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.
INDIVIDUALIZED ASSESSMENTS FOR HOME AND WORKSITE MODIFICATIONS:
ATP’s advanced model of services focuses on adapting services to meet the functional needs of individuals, rather than fitting individuals into categories of age, disability or income. An independent assessment provided by the technology specialist for ATP can curtail recommendations based on vendor product availability or cookie cutter approaches that expect one solution to fit all and are key to high consumer equipment utilization success rates.
INFORMATION ON TECHNOLOGY SOLUTIONS, COSTS AND AVAILABILITY
ATP has 23 technology specialists that work with individuals with disabilities and technology vendors on a daily basis confronting unique challenges and learning about available technologies. That work, along with their backgrounds (as diverse as occupational or physical therapy, speech language pathology, information technology, architecture, etc.) allows them to collaborate and share information when looking for unique and appropriate solutions.
