Assistive technology is any type of device that makes it easier for a child with a disability to perform a physiological function that might otherwise be difficult or impossible. Our Assistive Technology Program supports children with a variety of communication, learning, and mobility needs.
Our Assistive Technology team is made up of experts from several fields, including:
- speech and language pathology
- physical therapy
- occupational therapy
- rehabilitation engineering services (specialists who use the principles of engineering to design or adapt assistive devices)
Teamwork is essential when introducing assistive technology to a child, and we actively seek to build a strong collaboration among children, parents and family members, community-based therapists and teachers, and our clinic staff. Together, we can facilitate your child’s most effective use of his or her skills and technologies in every setting with assistive technology.
When your child needs an assistive device, we provide evaluations and recommendations for children with a variety of communication, learning, and mobility needs.
We offer complete specialized assessments, as well as individual therapy and training, consultation with your child’s other therapists and educators, and assistance with the set-up and customization of any assistive technology aids.
