What is Assistive Technology?
The Assistive Technology Industry Association (ATIA) defines Assistive Technology (AT)” as any item, piece of equipment, software program, or product system that is used to increase, maintain, or improve the functional capabilities of persons with disabilities.”
ServiceSource can help you identify AT to best fit your needs. We provide comprehensive AT assessments conducted by licensed clinicians and provide a comprehensive written report to with recommendations specific to you. We’ll also help you identify funding options to obtain recommended items.
What use is AT if it isn’t set up to meet your specific needs? ServiceSource will assist you with setting up and customizing your AT to ensure it works best for you. Once you obtain your AT devices, contact us to schedule your follow up appointments. Initial customization appointments are always conducted in-person.
Once your AT is set up and customized, the next step is learning how to use it. ServiceSource will provide you and your support team with training on how to use your AT and how to change settings as your needs and desires change. A combination of in-person and telehealth options may be available for training.
