Best Place for the Disabled to Bring Their Electronic Troubles

Center for Accessible Technology

Know someone who can’t use a keyboard because of chronic pain, a learning disability, or a physical or mental problem? Know of a teacher who wants to help every child in the classroom become computer-savvy, including those with short attention spans and uncoordinated fingers? Know someone with missing digits or limbs, who can’t hear, can’t speak, can’t see, and can’t afford state-of-the-art specialized computer equipment? The Center for Accessible Technology (CforAT) opens up cyberspace and the world to all of them. A nonprofit organization launched in 1983 as the Disabled Children’s Computer Group, CforAt has expanded to offer high-tech aid to persons of all ages and ability levels. Whether you need a customized keyboard, voice-activated software, financial support, or lessons on how to use “sticky” keys, the knowledgeable folks at CforAt will help you find a solution. Call to schedule a free “Explore Technology” appointment, which will include a needs assessment and evaluation, and check for classes, special events, advice, and other great resources at www.cforat.org.
