Assistive Technology

Untitled Document

Assistive technology products are designed to provide additional accessibility to individuals who have physical or cognitive difficulties, impairments, and disabilities. When selecting assistive technology products, it is crucial to find products that are compatible with the computer operating system and programs on the particular computer being used.

Identifying the best assistive technology solution often requires an in-depth needs assessment to understand how a difficulty or impairment impacts computer use.

There are many types of assistive technology products and hundreds of products available. To be sure you have identified the right product to meet your needs, locate an accessibility center in your area or use a needs assessment tool.
