WHAT IS ASSISTIVE TECHNOLOGY (AT)?
Assistive technology is any accommodation provided that compensates a cognitive or physical deficit for people with disabilities by providing equal access to information, tasks or activities.
Assistive technology helps people who have difficulty speaking, walking, talking, remembering, seeing, hearing, learning, and many other things. Each person is unique, and different challenges require different AT.
Closing The Gap does not manufacture AT. We are a non-bias resource, publishing news and information, and providing professional development training sharing assistive technology best practices and implementation strategies.
