Session Description:

Come find out how your Assistive Technology Act Program in Georgia, Tools for Life, can help you help Georgians with disabilities! Tools for Life (TFL) is funded by the Federal Tech Act which is legislation to promote direct AT services to individuals of all ages and disabilities in each state. Tools for Life increases independence for Georgians with disabilities by providing access to and acquisition of assistive technology devices and services. The TFL Network is fulfilling the intent of the Tech Act through AT assessments, AT lending libraries, device demonstrations, trainings for individuals and groups, AT reuse, and funding education and assistance. Presenters will share information about the Tools for Life program, Network and community partners including funding resources that assist with purchasing assistive technology devices. During this session participants will be provided opportunities to explore app solutions that promote success in the lives of people with disabilities and can ultimately assist with successful transitions at school and into the workplace and community. Join us to learn how you and those you work with can benefit from these services!
