"It's the comprehensive place to go for state and national AT resources and programs," reports Ann Shor, Director of Independent Living and Assistive Technology at the Massachusetts Rehabilitation Commission. "We're excited about the enhancements and continue to welcome feedback from anyone with an interest in AT."
In addition to providing information on how to find, try, borrow, fund, and buy AT devices, the site's new programs and features include:
- An AT Services Directory to help users find providers of AT services and training close to home.
- Ask the Expert, AT Forum, and AT Product Review pages on the Get Help menu.
- The AT School Swap to help schools maximize their resources and get students the devices they need fast.
- For Educators, For Employers, For Providers home pages to help these targeted audiences find what they need and get answers to their questions.
- Online access to the inventory of the AT Device Loan Programs.
"We're grateful for the input we've had from AT users, family members, and agency staff during site development," Ms Shor remarked. "And for those who'd like to get involved, we have openings on the MassMATCH AT Advisory Council for people with disabilities who use AT. We hope the website will act as a catalyst to bring together a strong community of AT users who can share information and continue to strengthen MassMATCH."
