• Assistive Technology Locating funding often creates a barrier to acquiring needed assistive technology (AT) devices and services. While ATP does not directly fund the purchase of devices, it is a resource for individuals with disabilities and their family members, school staff, service providers, counselors, employers, and others to:
    (1) Obtain information about AT and appropriate funding sources;
    (2) Borrow equipment on a trial basis (or device repair);
    (3) Purchase selected equipment or software at discount prices;
    (4) Consult with specialists regarding accessibility issues;
    (5) Receive training; and
    (6) Receive on-site support at home, in schools and on the job.
