Augmentative Communication
What is Assistive Technology?

Assistive Technology refers to mechanical aids which take the place of or enhance some physical or intellectual ability that is impaired.  The items may range from something as simple as a hand-bar in the bathtub to a high tech communication device.  Other examples of assistive technology that might be helpful to both children and adults are: text to speech, speech to text, using a computer for writing assignments. 
The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), the federal special education law, provides the following legal definition of an assistive technology device: "any item, piece of equipment, or product system... that is used to increase, maintain, or improve functional capabilities of individuals with disabilities."  
We offer evaluations, therapy and training for clients of all ages.  Our aim is to provide greater independence through the use of assitive technology, 
We provide assistance in the following areas to both children and adults:
