Assistive Technology Devices

Commercial or custom designed therapeutic devices or equipment are used to increase capacity and minimize the functional limitations associated with a developmental disability. The device or equipment is to be used by the individual with a developmental disability.

The assistive technology equipment and supplies can decrease the need for staff attendants, thereby increasing the independence of a person with a disability and enabling the individual to live in a less restrictive environment. Examples may include Braille, video or audio-recorded directions, augmented communication technology, talking alarm clocks, hearing aids, therapy balls, or vehicle lift installed in a van owned by the client.

Items not covered include, but are not limited to, swimming pools, hot tubs, toys, playground equipment (e.g. trampolines, sandboxes, swing sets), and home modification. Eyeglasses may be purchased only for children under the age of three years enrolled in the First Steps program.

Talk to your Support Coordinator for more information about assistive technology devices.
