Assistive Technology

ServiceSource offers basic assistive technology screenings which help identify assistive technologies that can increase individual’s independence, participation, and performance in everyday tasks and activities. Technology screenings are available for communication, computer access, memory and organization, hearing needs, vision needs, and physical needs. In addition to screenings, training is also available for those new to their assistive technology device(s) or those who may need extra help learning how to use their device(s). Screenings are provided at no charge at the ServiceSource Resource Center in Oakton, Virginia.
