Assistive Technology (AT) is any equipment that can help people with disabilities overcome their limitations or keep them from getting worse. AT can include equipment that is purchased, designed or specially modified. It can be as simple as a magnifying glass or as complex as a specially designed computer or program.
Examples include adapted eating utensils, picture communication boards, radios with special switch devices, screen readers, wheelchairs, electric van lifts, software programs and communication devices.
