The TECH Center is a place for children, parents, adult consumers, and
professionals to learn about assistive technology by providing hands-on
access to computer hardware, software, and adapative equipment.
Assistive technology is any equipment that can be harnessed by an
individual with a disability to diminish or eliminate barriers to
education or independence. TASK's TECH Center demonstrates a wide range
of assistive technology solutions, ranging from "low tech" options like
specialized pencil grips for people with fine motor difficulties to
"high tech" devices like head-controlled peripherals that allow people
without the use of their arms or legs to access the computer.
The TECH Center has 11 computers, over 1,250 software titles, and more
than 1,000 iOS apps for the iPod Touch and iPad, as well as a multitude
of different types of adaptive equipment such as alternative keyboards,
trackballs, mice and switches.
