The goal of UCP Central PA’s Assistive Technology Services is to increase independence and functional ability of people with disabilities and aging Pennsylvanians through the use of assistive technology (AT) at work, school, home, or in the community.
The AT Services we provide include:
Evaluations to be conducted at the individual’s home, work site, school, or other agreed upon setting. Each evaluation is completed by a certified Assistive Technology Specialist, an Occupational Therapist, and/or a Speech Therapist, as needed.
Actual trials with equipment are completed before specific recommendations are made. Input from the individual (and, as appropriate, their caregiver) is considered in order to help ensure a successful match between the user and the recommended equipment.
Follow-up services, including equipment set up and training tailored to the individual’s needs and learning style. The training is conducted by an Assistive Technology Specialist and may occur in the user’s home, school, or work setting
The following areas may be addressed during an evaluation:
