The Assistive Technology & Employment Toolkit

A Resource for Supporting Individuals with Disabilities to Utilize Technology to Pursue & Sustain Competitive Integrated Employment (CIE)

Assistive Technology (AT) can impact a person’s well-being by improving their ability to see, speak, hear, walk, eat, bathe, connect with loved ones, and live more independently. As defined in the Assistive Technology Act of 2004 (P.L. 108-364), assistive technology means any item, piece of equipment, or product system, whether acquired commercially, modified, or customized, that is used to increase, maintain, or improve functional capabilities of individuals with disabilities.
