Local experts will share about the benefits of assistive technology for youth and adults with disabilities on The Ability Center’s free webinar on September 24 at 10:00 a.m. Assistive Technology (AT) can be defined by the CDC as any device or equipment that can be used to help a person with a disability fully engage in life activities.

Examples of AT may include a magnifying glass, a specialized computer that helps someone communicate, and mobility aids such as wheelchairs, walkers, and scooters.

The Ability Center recently launched the Tech for REC Program designed to temporarily equip youth and adults with disabilities assistive technology to aid in completing independent living goals. Switch adapted toys and leisure items are also available through this program.

Questions can be sent via Facebook or Zoom chat live on the webinar.
