Assistive technology (AT) is any item, piece of equipment, software program, or product system that is used to increase, maintain, or improve the functional capabilities of persons with disabilities. Assistive Technology Awareness Day brings attention to the importance of assistive technology and how residents can access services through Wyoming Assistive Technology Resources, the state’s AT Act Program.
