Assistive Technology makes the world more accessible for New Voices children. It gives children with communication and physical disabilities a way to communicate and a way to live more fulfilled and integrated lives.
A few examples of AT include:
- A computer that can be programmed to talk for children who cannot speak
- Wheelchairs, both manual and power, for children who cannot walk
- Page turners for children who can not use their hands to turn a page of a book
- Large screen computers for children who have difficulty with small print
- Remote control switches (often mounted on a wheelchair) which can operate lamps, TVs and other appliances
