The Utah Assistive Technology Program (UATP) gets assistive technology (AT) into the hands of people who need it. Our goal is to help people use technology to be more independent in education, employment, and community settings.
The UATP is a federally-funded program serving individuals with disabilities of all ages in Utah and the intermountain region. Our job is to provide assistive technology devices and services as well as train university students, parents, children with disabilities and professional service providers about assistive technology. We coordinate our services with community organizations and others who provide independence-related supports to individuals with disabilities.
What is assistive technology?
Assistive technology is any item, piece of equipment, or product system, whether acquired commercially off the shelf, modified, or customized, that is used to increase, maintain or improve functional capabilities of individuals with disabilities. Simply stated, assistive technology includes tools, devices and resources used by individuals with disabilities to help improve their quality of life and increase their independence.
