Type
Webinar
Description
Tools for Life increases independence for Georgians with disabilities by providing access to and acquisition of assistive technology (AT) devices and services. The TFL Network is fulfilling the intent of the Tech Act through various statewide activities including funding education and assistance. Sometimes it's easy to find out what assistive technology is available and will help with daily activities; however, often the difficult part is finding and understanding resources that can help acquire these technologies. Funding for AT can be a major barrier and the only obstacle to getting and owning the tools needed for success. This webinar will focus on a few funding resources that can be used to help purchase assistive technology. Presenters will discuss these specific funding resources, their application process and how to successfully navigate a few complex systems to get AT into the hands of Georgians with disabilities Participants will also learn more about the Tools for Life online funding guide, Dollars and Sense. If you are ready to "find your strategy" and learn more about funding your assistive technology devices, then don't miss out on these important resources!
