Assistive Technology (AT) is best described as any device, technology, or aid that assists a person with any type of disability to be more independent and able to perform a task.
AT Supports Daily Activities
AT helps people with disabilities perform the daily activities most other people take for granted. Getting out of bed and going to work or school may only be possible for some people through the use of AT. Once at work or school, using a computer, reading, or communicating with peers are tasks that may also require the use of AT. AT plays a vital role in ensuring that people with disabilities achieve their best and participate fully in the community.
