Assistive Technology (A.T.) is any device, piece of equipment or product that makes it easier for someone with a disability or a limitation to live more independently and safely, work at a job, learn in school, get about their community or pursue play and leisure.
There will be an Assistive Technology webinar on Wednesday, December 2 from 1:00 to 2:00 pm put on by Maine Department of Education's Center for Center for Information Technology in Education (CITE).
