Find out how your Assistive Technology Act Program in Georgia, Tools for Life, can help you help your students 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. The presenters will share and explore information about the Tools for Life program, network and community partners, funding resources that assist with purchasing assistive technology devices, and some inexpensive and reliable AT solutions for the classroom.
