LEAP’s assistive technology and home modification resources helps people with disabilities learn how AT can help them with such everyday tasks as communicating, cooking, and organizing. This includes a lending library that permits consumers to borrow items and try them out at home.
Assessments: LEAP has selected items that can be brought to a person’s home or workplace to assess their effectiveness for that individual. Such on-site observation can be critical in evaluating whether a piece of assistive technology will be useful to someone.
Training: The program provides one-on-one training to users, as well as necessary support personnel, on selected pieces of technology. This is done with the creation of modified user manuals and individual or small group instruction.
Classes: People who would like to use specific pieces of assistive technology may sign up for classes to learn more about the product or how to use it more effectively.
Workshops: A workshop is a great way for a person to get an overview of available assistive technology options.
