What is Assistive Technology?
Assistive Technology is any device that can help increase, maintain, or improve a person’s functional capabilities. AT can include things like hearing aids, speech generating devices, picture boards, social stories, and much more.
To help you learn more about AT, we provide a signature service called a “Techsploration.” The Techsploration is a 1-hour appointment in the PHP iTECH lab, under the guidance of one of our AT Specialists. At your visit, you will learn about the different types of AT available and what may be helpful for your child.
PHP AT Specialists also host training and workshops, and maintain a variety of AT toolkits available for loan for Parents Helping Parents members. Click on the links to the left to find out more.
