Send us a photo and you could win $100!


AT is defined as any device, gadget, hardware or software used by a person with a disability to do things for themselves that might otherwise be difficult or impossible to do because of their disability.

Assistive Technology helps people with disabilities live, work, learn and play as independently as possible. AT includes low-tech items like a reacher or a magnifying glass or high-tech equipment like tablet apps, or systems that allow you to control your computer with your eyes. For communication, learning, playing, to get around, working, chances are there is an AT solution for you.

Five different winners each will receive $100!

Deadline for submission is Monday, March 14, 2016.

Many people with disabilities use assistive technology to accomplish tasks they otherwise could not. Sometimes they modify a commercial device or improvise their own device to meet a specific need. By sharing pictures of individuals using their assistive technology, entrants can motivate and inspire others who are looking for solutions of their own. See Official Contest Rules for details.
