Assistive TechnologyWhy This Is Important
Sharing information about assistive technology for people with disabilities is important because this technology can help everyone improve the quality of their lives. Assistive technology can include very simple things like a letter opener that is easy to use for people who have trouble using their hands, or it can be very elaborate like the communication devices that use computer technology to help people speak.
This department has many products that are examples of assistive technology helpful to people with disabilities. The department also has websites that provide information and reviews about many different assistive technology products. Finally, the department has many resources that help people gain access to the assistive technology they need. This is sometimes hard because some devices cost a lot of money, but there are many ways to find funding.
