Accessing Tools for Life: Your Assistive Technology Act Program in Georgia

Presenters: Martha Rust, Ben Jacobs and Liz Persaud

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. This session will explore the Tools for Life program and share updated program information as well as funding resources that assist with purchasing assistive technology devices. Join us to learn how you and those you work with can benefit from these services!
