People with disabilities can often benefit from assistive technology (also known as AT or adaptive technology). Indeed, many people rely on assistive technology in order to participate in daily life, including numerous children who attend public schools.

Choosing a computer, selecting software or buying an adaptive device is a complex decision.

This section was designed for people interested in learning how assistive technology can enhance the quality of life of individuals with disabilities. It offers guidance in the selection of adaptive equipment and provides information to Washington residents with disabilities obtain the technologies they need to live independently and to succeed at school, at work, at play and in the community. The guide is organized so that each section will provide resources and services under the headings of: 
 

  • Clinics for services such as Assessment and Training

  • Assistive Technology and Life Skills Training 

  •  
  • Child and Family Support
