Assistive Technology

Assistive Technology encompasses a broad range of low-tech and high-tech devices that allow people with disabilities to perform functions that might otherwise be too difficult.

We offer a variety of services, including but not limited to:

  • Demonstrations of both low-tech and high-tech devices
  • A loan program for devices and equipment
  • Adaptations for computers and smartphones
  • Workplace accommodations and accessibility
  • Customized technology solutions

Initial consultations are offered free of charge. Fees may be required for additional services.

Making Sparks

Despite the broad range of assistive technology that exists, we sometimes face problems that do not yet have a solution. When assistive technology devices are impractical or cost-prohibitive, Making Sparks is how we respond. We work with individuals to modify existing devices or create customized solutions. Through a variety of partnerships with organizations like KnoxMakers, a local community makerspace, we bring innovative ideas to completion in ways that allow clients to play, explore, create, and express themselves.
