In an attempt to decrease the number of times IPAT staff hears, “How come I’ve never heard about you?” we will post a monthly blog noting where, when and who the IPAT staff will be connecting with each month. We hope this serves as a reminder for you to reconnect with us, or serves as a springboard to have you make an initial connection.
As a refresher, IPAT delivers services so all state residents can learn about, try and obtain the assistive technology (AT) they may need to close the gap between ability and disability. More than ever, we see that AT is helping people by increasing their involvement in all areas of daily life, whether that be in the community, the classroom, at work, or while remaining at home.
We help people of all ages in the state with hearing, vision, mobility, communication, learning, and memory losses. Our mission is to introduce them to the world of AT, and help them explore devices they may use to continue leading their life with purpose and independence. If you think a group you are involved with could benefit from learning about AT contact IPAT.
