Assistive technology (AT) allows a person with a disability to engage more fully with his or her environment. Its scope is broad, where infants through the most senior among us can benefit from AT. And its applications are almost endless, from helping with communication to providing reminders to reducing the effort to complete a task to improving access to other technology such as computers. AT is any item, piece of equipment, or product system that is used to increase, maintain, or improve functional capabilities of individuals with disabilities.
