TECHNOLOGY

Assistive technology, often referred to as “A.T.,” includes just about anything – that is, any physical material or object – that makes it easier for a person to perform a task.  Explore the world of A.T. with TheCIL's Assistive Technology Program.

Disability Awareness Training

TheCIL’s Disability Awareness Training (DAT) is an interactive training that aims to bridge the gap between people with and without disabilities. The DAT is designed to address any assumptions or uncertainties one might have regarding disabilities through hands-on activities and in-depth discussions. Participants will complete the training with a stronger understanding of the alternative tools and methods people with disabilities use to maintain their independence and improved confidence and comfort for future interactions with people of various abilities.
