What is Assistive Technology (AT)?
An assistive technology (AT) device is any item, piece of equipment, or product system, whether acquired commercially, modified, or customized, that is used to increase, maintain, or improve the capabilities of individuals with disabilities.
The term ‘assistive technology (AT) service’ includes any service that directly assists an individual with a disability in the selection, acquisition, or use of an AT device, including:
- The evaluation of the AT needs of an individual with a disability, including a functional evaluation of the impact of the provision of appropriate AT and appropriate services to the individual in the customary environment of the individual;
- A service consisting of purchasing, leasing, or otherwise providing for the acquisition of AT devices by individuals with disabilities;
- A service consisting of selecting, designing, fitting, customizing, adapting, applying, maintaining, repairing, replacing, or donating AT devices;
- Coordination and use of necessary therapies, interventions, or services with AT devices, such as therapies, interventions, or services associated with education and rehabilitation plans and programs;
- Training or technical assistance for an individual with a disability or, where appropriate, the family members, guardians, advocates, or authorized representatives of such an individual;
- Training or technical assistance for professionals (including individuals providing education and rehabilitation services and entities that manufacture or sell AT devices), employers, providers of employment and training services, or other individuals who provide services to, employ, or are otherwise substantially involved in the major life functions of individuals with disabilities;
- A service consisting of expanding the availability of access to technology, including electronic and information technology, to individuals with disabilities.
