I went to the Raleigh AT Center a few weeks ago. I met with April Furr who is a speech language pathologist. She was very helpful. This center is a great resource. Take the time to go and visit. The center offers device demonstrations, device loans and assistive technology expertise. Here is the link and the first page of the website.
The North Carolina Assistive Technology Program (NCATP) is a state and federally funded program that provides assistive technology services statewide to people of all ages and abilities.
Assistive Technology (AT) is any type of equipment that helps people with disabilities or older individuals be more independent at home, school, work, leisure time, or in community life.
