What Is Assistive Technology?

In general, the term 'assistive technology device' means any item, piece of equipment, or product system, whether acquired commercially off the shelf, modified, or customized, that is used to increase, maintain, or improve functional capabilities of a child with a disability.

Assistive Technology can be anything from a simple (low-tech) device such as a pencil grip, to a complex (high-tech) device, such as a computerized communication system.
