Assistive Technology

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
