Assistive Technology

Assistive technology is a term that includes assistive technology, adaptive technology or adaptive devices, and rehabilitative devices specifically for people with disabilities.  It may also include the process used in selecting, locating, and using them.

Assistive technology promotes greater independence by enabling people to perform tasks that they were formerly unable to accomplish, or had great difficulty accomplishing, by using technology.adaptive IT device
