Device Demonstrations

Device demonstrations are available to people with disabilities and their families, as well as providers of education, health, employment and related services. Demonstrations will:

  • Increase your understanding of the types of devices that can help you with a specific need, such as talking on the telephone or reading your mail
  • Improve your knowledge of a device's features, and how those features differ from other devices that perform the same thing, such as the difference between two personal listening devices
  • Increase your understanding of how device(s) can help you at work, in school, at home and in your community

Request a Demonstration

The Tools for Life Network operates comprehensive demonstration services within our ATRCs where individuals can see a broad range of assistive technology devices. Requests for a demonstration can be made by telephone or email. A mutually convenient time for the demonstration will be set. Your request may be individually accommodated at one of our offices, may result in a group demonstration at an agency site, or you may be referred to events, trainings or services readily available in your community.
