Assistive Technology Services

Assistive Technology (AT) means devices or services that allow a person with a disability to be employed or to increase independent living capabilities. Devices range from "low tech" devices such as Braille watches or magnifiers to "high tech" devices such as magnification and speech output computer programs or handheld electronic magnification devices. Services include training in use of devices.

Eligibility Requirements:

SBVI jointly reviews the need for assistive technology with every consumer who applies or is eligible for vocational rehabilitation or independent living older blind services. In many cases SBVI may purchase devices as part of an Individual Plan for Employment (IPE).
