What is Assistive Technology (AT)?

Making Life possible with Assistive Technology

Assistive Technology (AT) includes products, devices and systems that help people with disabilities and older adults at home, work, school, and in the community. AT can also help people participate in social, recreational, and civic events. Using AT helps support connection and reduces isolation. Read What is Assistive Technology written in plain language.
TFL provides access to AT Labs that showcase a range of assistive technology, from basic products to advanced systems. The AT labs include tools to assist with daily living, vision, hearing, and communication. New labs include tools designed to support older adults, and the new Adaptive Gaming Lab.
