November is Assistive Technology Awareness Month
November is Assistive Technology Awareness Month in Pennsylvania. Join Pennsylvania Assistive Technology Foundation (PATF) to celebrate and raise awareness about the various types of AT and the difference they make in your life and the lives of others by entering PATF’s 7th Annual Show Us Your Tech AT Photo Contest. Assistive technology (AT) doesn’t have to be complex or expensive to make a difference in your life.
What is Assistive technology (AT)?
Assistive technology (AT) is any device that helps a person with a disability do the things they want to do.
Examples of AT include: hearing aids, smart home devices, vehicle and home modifications, computers and tablets, mobility scooters, adaptive sports equipment, and so much more!
That is why for the month of November, we are asking you to Show Us Your Tech and help raise awareness about the benefits and the variety of AT.
Past photo contest participants shared how they are using assistive technology to gain greater independence, freedom, opportunity, connection, and joy. That is what assistive technology is all about.
This definition does not include assistance animals.
We want to hear your range of experiences with AT and its impact on your life and their lives of others. Whether you are an AT user, business, non-profit, family, caregiver, advocate, or friend, you can join us and help raise awareness about AT.
Show Us Your Tech: Throughout November, submit your AT photos and share your stories about the difference AT is making in your life. Winners are chosen based on entries that best describe and show how AT is making a difference in their life.
